Manufacturing Certificate

This program is offered at Clark State's Springfield location.

The Manufacturing Certificate is designed for students who wish to enhance their skills in areas related to manufacturing. Courses in drafting, computer-aided design, programmable logic controllers, automated systems, and robotics are included since these skills are needed in new and in updating existing manufacturing processes. The program courses are all included in the Manufacturing Technology associate degree so students can continue with that program after achieving their certificate. Some of the courses are taught in the Directed Learning Lab.

Scholastic Preparation
The time required for a student to complete the certificate will depend on their level of preparation. They should have high school algebra, trigonometry, and physics or their equivalents. These preparatory courses can be taken at Clark State, but that will increase the time required to complete the program.
