Residential Faculty - Manufacturing
This program is part of the Applied Sciences and Technology Department.
Without well-trained individuals to run machinery and oversee production and manufacturing, businesses’ production facilities would operate inefficiently and be in danger of producing inferior products.
The Manufacturing program will help transform you into an invaluable asset by teaching you essential skills like process design, QA, quality control, computer numeric control (CNC) machine set-up and operation, computer-aided design (CAD), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programming. You will also learn how to apply mathematical reasoning to the manufacturing process, analyze technical documents to make informed decisions, and use other state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and procedures as an operator or technician while following manufacturing regulations and safety practices.
