Manufacturing Engineering

Associate in Science

Manufacturing Engineering Technology is a varied and challenging field that is becoming increasingly important with the advent of new production methods. Manufacturing Engineering Technicians work with engineers to design experiments, plan production methods, find better ways to manufacture products, troubleshoot, inspect, and perform quality control. Students use Computer Aided Drafting (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), and Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) technologies to design cutting tools, gauges, jigs, fixtures, and dies; study production line layout, production forecasting, planning, inventory control, and statistical quality control; learn the methods of determining and distributing expenses and estimating material, labor, and tool costs of product manufacturing; make time studies of manufacturing operations; and investigate hydraulic control, manufacturing processes, and engineering materials. Students entering the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program should plan on spending approximately $60 on drafting equipment.
