The Manufacturing Engineering Technologist Program prepares graduates to work in the manufacturing sector. They will assist engineering and management in the design and development of new products and in the improvement of production processes.
The program provides instruction for skilled production workers with hands-on training to:
- apply principles, techniques, procedures, and equipment to the design and production of various goods and services.
- design and produce 2D and 3D components and assemblies.
- apply engineering economics and management principles to support strategic planning, resource allocation, leadership technique, production methods, and coordination of people and resources.
- analyze and troubleshoot manufacturing processes and systems for safety and quality.
- monitor production processes with an emphasis on safety and quality assurance.
Coursework includes communications, technical college math, chemistry, physics, and solid modeling design. You will design, analyze and recommend product and process improvements for manufactured industrial and consumer products. You will use measurement instrumentation, explore manufacturing processes, statistics, written communication, math, quality assurance, safety, and computer aided design. In addition, the program offers training in leadership, sociology, psychology, and project management to help graduates prepare for their careers in manufacturing engineering technology.
This program has been designed for transferability and includes transcripted courses to allow credit transfer from participating high schools and is aligned with articulations to four-year degree programs.
