Manufacturing/Engineering Technology

Associate of Applied Science Degree

About the Program

This two-year program integrates conventional manufacturing techniques with computer integrated manufacturing skills. Computer aided drafting (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) are used as basic tools in the manufacturing engineering process. In addition to technical training, students receive a solid education in mathematics and physical science, along with human relations and computer skills courses.

Graduates typically enter the workforce as computer aided design drafters, entry-level machinists, or computer numerical control (CNC) machine operators or engineering assistants. With additional on-the-job experience, this training facilitates movement into fields such as tool and die maker, quality control inspector, computer aided manufacturing (CAM) programmer, or lower-level supervisory positions. For transfer to a four-year institution in engineering, additional or alternate transfer courses will be recommended.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for manufacturing programs are:

Set up, operate, and program manual lathes to print specifications.

Interpret and develop machine tool paths using Master Cam software to create mechanical parts to industry standards.

Follow, develop, and troubleshoot manufacturing processes and procedures.

Demonstrate the ability to adhere to personal and industry safety standards to protect personnel and equipment.

Operate and program CNC mills and lathes to print specifications.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college registration policies and with the Manufacturing/Engineering Technology Department chair’s recommendation. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over four years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate program coordinator before being accepted toward core requirements. Students must complete coursework in their major at a “C” or better level before proceeding to advanced coursework. Each College Now credit student must meet with the program coordinator to determine placement.

Credits earned in the successful completion of Career Pathways certificates can be applied to other certificates and degrees in the Career Pathway. For more information, speak to a program advisor.

Graduation Requirements

Students are required to complete all courses in this program with a grade of “C” or better to receive their degrees. Certain required courses are graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.
