AAS Manufacturing Production Technology
Academic Plan Code
MCCCD Program Detail
Students must earn a grade of C or better for all courses required within the program.
This program replaces:
AAS/3255 Production Technology
AAS/3616 Manufacturing Technology
The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Manufacturing Production Technology program prepares students for employment as operators, technicians, and managers in the manufacturing industry. The program provides applied skills in process design, quality control, Computer Numeric Control (CNC), and Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) programming for current and future needs of the manufacturing industry. Embedded Certificates of Completion (CCLs) in CNC Machine Operator, CNC Machining I, and CNC Machining II are also available.
What You’ll Learn
This program will help you gain the expertise needed to:
- Practice safety rules and regulations applicable to a manufacturing environment.
- Apply mathematical reasoning to the manufacturing process.
- Analyze technical documentation and materials to make informed decisions in manufacturing processes.
- Evaluate compliance using standardized industry inspection techniques.
- Demonstrate personal and professional accountability.
- Effectively communicate with diverse audiences orally, visually, and in writing in the manufacturing environment.
- Effectively work within a cross-disciplinary team structure.
- Use the appropriate hand, measuring and cutting tool for a given task according to industry standards.
- Program, set up, operate, and adjust manual and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) manufacturing machinery or equipment using a combination of diverse materials and technologies.
- Analyze processes and problems within manufacturing to make appropriate decisions.
- Design mechanical components and assemblies to industry standards for additive and subtractive manufacturing processes.
