Introduction to the Advanced Manufacturing Associate in Science Degree (AS) Program
This program offers a sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers in the manufacturing career cluster; provides technical skill proficiency, and includes competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge, higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills, and knowledge of all aspects of the manufacturing career cluster. The program consists of general education requirements and a set of Engineering Technology Core courses which leads to the college credit certificate, Engineering Technology Support Specialist. The program Engineering Technology Core aligns with the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council’s (MSSC). MSSC skill standards define the knowledge, skills, and performance needed for manufacturing workers. After completing the Technical Core and the General Education requirements, students should be prepared to pass the MSSC – CPT Certified Production Technician (CPT) Certification. A student can also acquire practical working experience by participating in our Co-op opportunities with local manufacturers. We strongly encourage that you contact the Engineering Technology Department for assistance in your decision to take coursework and in the planning of your program of study. The Engineering Technology AS program requires students to select one of two specializations; Advanced Manufacturing or Mechanical Design and Fabrication.
The Associate in Science degree in Engineering Technology – Advanced Manufacturing includes College Credit Certificates in:
- Engineering Technology Support Specialist
- Manufacturing Automation Specialist
- Lean Manufacturing
- Pneumatics, Hydraulics and Motors for Manufacturing
Students in this program are encouraged to apply to graduate with the certificate as the requirements are satisfied.
