Associate in Science Degree

Students at the associate in science level of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology program concentrate on the design of products that use innovative manufacturing technologies.  They study new ways to manufacture existing products by learning design principles, sketching, problem solving, and how both the engineering materials and manufacturing processes and machines are selected and scheduled.  Students gain a wide background of knowledge in such areas as electricity and electronics, metrology and the precision measurements of products, manufacturing processes, machining, tool design, and welding.

Design is emphasized utilizing the latest in computer aided design & drafting technology (CADD).  Graduates could work in a manufacturing environment that requires extensive technical diversity and mechanical problem solving skills.  The design and manufacture of new products using high-tech manufacturing processes can be an extremely exciting and rewarding career.

Every item that we buy today has been the result of a product design development process.  Today’s product designer works as a member of a product design and development team.  Cross-functional product design and development teams are responsible for bringing a product from initial conception to product launch when it becomes available to the public.  They also work to continually improve products after product launch.  

Graduates of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology program are prepared for several types of design and technologist positions on these teams, including positions such as manufacturing engineering technologist, industrial engineering technician, quality control engineering technician, research and development machinist, or manufacturing production technician.
