Advanced Manufacturing, A.A.S.
Associate in Applied Science
The mission of the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) program in Advanced Manufacturing is to prepare individuals to be electrical and mechanical maintenance technicians for the highly technological, integrated and automated manufacturing facilities of the modern workplace, and into the 21st century. The program is designed to integrate mechanical, electrical, process and control skills as employers are demanding technicians who are “cross-trained.” Students learn to install, replace, troubleshoot and repair equipment used in manufacturing facilities.
All technical courses have an intensive hands-on lab component as students learn skills in electrical systems, motor control, hydraulics and pneumatics, programmable logic controllers, instrumentation, workplace safety, and problem solving and teamwork.
