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.
Students will choose two certificate programs in the following areas; Computer Numerical Control (CNC), Manufacturing, Additive Manufacturing, Welding, SCADA, Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Robotics, and Industrial Manufacturing. The courses in these programs, students will complete additional course work to complete the Manufacturing Engineering Associates Degree.
In addition to applied technical courses, Manufacturing Engineering Technology Associate Degree includes a 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.
Embedded Certificate This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will automatically be awarded if the certificate requirements are met unless the student contacts Records and Registration and indicates he/she does not wish to have the certificate credential awarded.
* The co-op must be a minimum of 2 semester hours in any combination of co-op (EBE 2701, EBE 2702, EBE 2703, EBE 2704).
The program schedule 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.
It is recommended students starting the program have one year each of high school algebra, trigonometry, and physics or the equivalents.
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.
