Two-Year Associate of Applied Science Degree
The Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology AAS prepares students to apply basic engineering principles and technical skills to the identification and resolution of production problems in the manufacture of products. Includes instruction in machine operations, production line operations, engineering analysis, systems analysis, instrumentation, physical controls, automation, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), manufacturing planning, quality control, and informational infrastructure.
The degree is beneficial for students who are new to design and fabrication technology and those who are currently in the field but looking to expand their skill base and increase their career opportunities. Students who have a non-technology career in another field may find this degree optimum for cross training into the CAD/CAM and manufacturing technology discipline.
Program Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to:
- Create products that adhere to print specifications and meet form, fit, and function.
- Create and plot 2D, 3D, and solid models with standard notations.
- Create detail parts, assemblies, drawings, presentations, plans and analysis tools that fill all informational needs for shop floor fabricators.
- Analyze manufacturing processes and procedures to ensure products meet industry competitive standards.
- Create plans, programs, and processes that match industrial best practice.
- Use powered systems and tools safely and effectively.
- Use computer applications in the design and manufacture of products and processes.
