Manufacturing Technology: Engineering-Associate in Science

Program Advisor: John Tatro

The Manufacturing Technology option of the Engineering Technology degree program is designed to provide students with the basic skills they need for a career in the manufacturing field. Courses in the program take place in campus classrooms and laboratories as well as off-campus locations with state-of-the-art equipment, software and training facilities. The program is designed to offer flexibility while also providing students for the elective options and technical internship opportunities that allow them to focus their efforts in an area of specialization.

With proper preparation in physics and mathematics, students interested in transferring to a baccalaureate institution to continue their education can do so by working closely with the program advisor to insure all prerequisites and requirements for transfer will be met.

Graduation Requirements To earn a degree in this program, a student must complete the 69 program and general education credits, plus the additional requirements, shown below.
