 Manufacturing & Operations Technology Department (OPT)
   
Operations Technology concentrates on the latest methods for making businesses more productive and profitable. As American businesses strive to be more competitive in today’s global marketplace, it needs professionals who can make their companies work more efficiently and reduce costs. The Operations Technology Department offers two ETAC/ABET accredited degrees, Operations Technology (OPT), Operations Technology - Industrial Engineering Technology Option (OPTIO). An additional non ETAC/ABET accredited degree, Operations Technology -Manufacturing Option (OPTMO).
 
OPT programs of study are endorsed by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, the Society of Plastics Engineers, and the National Composite Center.
 
What are the objectives of the Operations Technology Degree at Sinclair?
 OPT graduates work in manufacturing settings and in service organizations such as hospitals, banks, communications companies, consulting firms and the federal government. The OPT program allows graduates to optimize processes, improve productivity and reduce costs for an employer. Skills taught that equip students to accomplish this include ergonomics, cost and engineering economic analysis, computer simulation of manufacturing and service processes, design of product and service production processes, factory and office floor layout, work measurement, statistical process control, six sigma methods, lean manufacturing and service operations, value analysis and supply chain and logistics operations. Students take part in lecture-lab structured courses, on-line course offerings, hands-on demonstrations of course principles. Each student also completes an intern type capstone project course at a local organization. These teaching methods assure that students gain practical knowledge as well as the engineering technology fundamentals. Those who wish to further their studies may transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
 OPT Program Educational Objectives ensure that:
•  Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to function as an industrial engineering technician or closely related position in industry.
•  Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program.
 
This program is accredited by The Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Enrollment and graduation statistics can be found here.
