Today’s manufacturing is impacted by global competition forcing the need to accelerate product design and development. Graduates of this program are prepared for interdisciplinary careers in high-tech manufacturing and industrial technology. The areas of emphasis are modern design methods, production, and continuous improvement techniques.
During completion of course requirements, students will be given an opportunity to test and become certified in the following:
In addition to the areas of product design, 3-D CAD modeling, process planning, production scheduling, quality technician, and CNC programming and operation, a graduate of this degree may assume responsibilities in automated production, technical sales, and problem solving in many other areas of today’s dynamic world of manufacturing.
Graduates of this program are qualified and encouraged to pursue the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Certified Manufacturing Technologist (CMfgT) certification.
Graduates may transfer with articulated credit to universities such as Bradley University, Northern Illinois University, Illinois State University, Milwaukee School of Engineering, Southern Illinois University and University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Students are advised to contact the institution to which they plan to transfer to ensure course transfer credit availability. Students should also consult with an academic advisor, or the Dean or Academic Chair of the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program.
