Advanced Manufacturing

Advanced manufacturing technology is used in automated fabrication machinery (robotics) that require skilled technicians to design, program, service and repair. Mechatronics refers to the combination of mechanics and electronics.

Our hands-on Advanced Manufacturing programs prepare graduates to go to work as an entry-level service technician, diagnosing, servicing and repairing automated systems. Advanced manufacturing skills are also an excellent supplement to related areas such as electronics and engineering.
