Advanced Manufacturing Technology
Manufacturing technicians design and create precision parts and tools that are essential to an enormous number of industries ranging from aeronautics, plastics, shipbuilding, and engineering, among others. These parts and tools are manufactured through the use of lathes, milling machines, grinders, and robots, all of which are Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines. The advanced manufacturing program provides students the opportunity to learn all the skills demanded of the 21st century manufacturing technician. Students follow a course sequence that starts with the basics of machining and progresses to advanced multi-axis CNC programming, setup and operation, and robotics and automation. Qualified and skilled technicians are presently in high demand and students completing our program are ready to immediately enter the workforce or continue their education in college.
