Associate in Applied Science
Students in this program will demonstrate proficiency in the operation of various types of automated design/machine tool equipment. Competencies in design, programming, and materials and machine processing will be developed. In addition, students will hone skills in the manufacturing and troubleshooting of mechanical parts and the setup and operations of advanced manufacturing systems. Students will apply problem-solving skills learned in the program to create innovative solutions for real-word manufacturing challenges in preparation for entry-level Engineering Technologist or Technician positions.
This is a high skill and high wage program as defined by the Michigan Community College Network.
