The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Machining and Product Development program will prepare students to enter the job market with the entry-level skills to be able to develop new products with input from engineering sketches and drawings. The program will provide students with the broad range of skills and abilities, including machining skills, electro-mechanical assembly abilities, and product test and prove-out knowledge. Much of the program is designed to provide hands-on experience, with various machine shop machines and their accessories, as well as a suitable amount of related classroom material. Students who complete the program will have basic machining skills required to solve problems and technical challenges, and be able to work well in a product development environment or a custom, low volume production environment.
