Program Goals

  • To prepare students to qualify for immediate employment or transfer to a baccalaureate program in manufacturing or mechanical engineering technology.
  • To provide students with a General Education foundation.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of the program, the graduate will be able to:

  1. Author and troubleshoot Computer Numerically Control (CNC) and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), and microcontroller programs.
  2. Specify and install those sensors, detectors and electro- mechanical drive elements that are commonly found in industrial automation settings.
  3. Use manual machine shop tooling including manual lathes, mills and drill presses to fabricate and inspect mechanical parts and assemblies to a tolerance of +/- .003 inches.
  4. Read and explain basic pneumatic and hydraulic symbols and schematics.
  5. Analyze, synthesize, modify and troubleshoot manufacturing processes in the field.
  6. Apply mathematical Statistical Process Control techniques to measure and analyze variations in manufacturing processes.
