Mechanical Engineering Technology - Manufacturing Management Option & CNC Certificate (METM, METMC)

Mechanical Engineering Technology—Manufacturing Management Option (METM)

In the Mechanical Engineering Technology - Manufacturing Management Option, students learn the technologies and skills needed to manage a high-tech production facility.

The curriculum includes hands-on manufacturing processes, state-of-the-art Computer-Aided Drafting and Computer-Aided Machining (CAD/CAM), Computer Numerical Control (CNC), and materials and quality control analysis using statistical process control (SPC).

Graduates earn an Associate of Applied Science degree and are prepared for immediate employment in a production facility, or for easy transition into to related bachelor’s degree studies.

Mechanical Engineering Technology - Manufacturing CNC Certificate (METMC)

The Mechanical Engineering Technology - Manufacturing CNC Certificate is designed for individuals currently employed in a manufacturing field who desire additional knowledge of computer numerical control (CNC) programming and computer-aided manufacturing processes.

Most students can complete the certificate requirements in a year or less. All courses completed while earning this certificate may be applied to the associate's degree program Mechanical Engineering Technology - Manufacturing Management Option.
