Manufacturing Engineering Technology

Associate of Applied Science Degree
10-623-3

A skilled workforce is needed in the manufacturing/production operations and/or manufacturing/production services for the design and development of new products, production systems, processes, operations, services, quality control, continuous improvement, lean principles, manufacturing competitiveness, and sustainability. As a Manufacturing Engineering Technology associate degree graduate, you're prepared for a career as a technologist to apply the fundamentals of materials selection, tooling, assembly and automation to the solution of manufacturing and production related activities.  The Manufacturing Engineering Technology Associate's Degree program also prepares students to work in the manufacturing sector assisting engineering and management in the design and development of new products and in the improvement of production processes. 

  • Characterize lean culture and tools can help an organization achieve operational excellence          
  • Apply proper engineering principles in design     
  • Utilize computer-aided applications in design and manufacture of products and processes              
  • Demonstrate the principles of material selection and application              
  • Apply automation principles for design and control of manufacturing processes
