Manufacturing Technology MFGT.S.AAS

Associate of Applied Science - 60 - 62 Credit Hours

Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
Department: Industrial & Systems Engineering Technology
Effective as of Fall 2023

What is the program about?

This program prepares students for a career in Manufacturing by developing an understanding of manufacturing processes and how to implement and improve these processes in the areas of Mechanical and Industrial & Systems Engineering Technology, Automation, and Advanced Manufacturing. The degree includes traditional classroom instruction and "hands-on" laboratory experience. The first year of study contains an embedded 31-credit hour certificate, Basic Manufacturing. The student may also achieve the Industry Recognized MSSC Certified Production Technician Certificate in the first year. The second year of study will culminate in an AAS degree in one of five certificate pathways. These pathways include General Manufacturing, Advanced Manufacturing, Automation Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, Industrial & Systems Engineering Technology and Digital Thread Technology.
