Manufacturing Engineering Technology

This program is available at the Springfield - Leffel Lane 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.

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.

Transfer Information

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.
