Manufacturing Engineering Technology

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

The Manufacturing Engineering Technology program prepares students for a variety of positions within a manufacturing enterprise. The program builds on the student’s knowledge of computer-aided design, electronics, and manufacturing processes, providing additional skills in areas such as statistical process control, automation, and computer numerical control.

In addition to applied technical courses, Manufacturing Engineering Technology students can include an optional co-op experience.

Students must complete EBE 1000, Employability Skills, as a technical elective and then work with Office of Career Management to secure an appropriate co-op site.

The program schedule that follows is designed for full-time students who have completed all prerequisites and who have no college preparatory recommendations. Many individuals, especially part-time students, and those taking college preparatory courses, will require additional semesters of study. Students should consult their academic advisors for help in planning their schedules.

Scholastic Preparation
Students starting the program should have had one year each of high school algebra, trigonometry, and physics or the equivalents. Students may take these preparatory courses at Clark State, but they will require a longer amount of time to complete their degree program. Those without high school physics must complete PHY 1100, Fundamentals of Physics.

Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of an Associate of Applied Science degree in Manufacturing Technology, a graduate will be able to:

Design, produce, and document a finished product per quality specifications using knowledge of engineering, materials, metrology, and manufacturing process. Use computers in troubleshooting, maintenance planning, and report writing. Demonstrate basic knowledge of manufacturing processes, including safety, cost, documentation, material selection, fabrication, and assembly. Formulate and analyze the mathematical models for physical and engineering problems. Use commonly-available instruments, schematics, operating manuals, and troubleshooting guides. Transfer Options

Students enrolled in Associate of Applied Business and Associate of Applied Science degree programs are preparing for employment upon graduation from the program. However, at some point many of these students are also interested in completing a bachelor's degree. A number of colleges or universities have designed bachelor's completion programs designed for students completing applied degrees. See the Transfer section of the catalog for more information.
