Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology, AAS
Associate of Applied Science in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology (288006AAS)
Dr. Wesley Carpenter
Schrank Hall (South) 221A
Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology is concerned with the analysis, design, and management of all the resources, facilities, and people involved in manufacturing processes. Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology requires a background in basic technical subjects, management techniques, work measurement, safety procedures, plant layout, quality control, maintenance, production control, economics, and computer applications such as CAD, CNC, and CAM.
A graduate of this program finds employment in manufacturing supervision and control. Duties involve the design modification, installation, and operation of integrated systems of people, materials, machines, and methods used to produce a product at a profit. Specific career opportunities may be found in the following functional areas:
- Manufacturing Engineering Technician
- Manufacturing Supervision
- Methods – production, planning, methods and engineering
- Work Measurements – time study, motion study, and standards
- Wage Payment – wage incentives, job evaluation
- Controls – production control, quality control, inventory control
- Plant Facilities and Design – plant layout, material handling, product design, storage facilities, and maintenance of plant equipment
- Industrial Relations – management-union relations, workers’ compensation
- Safety and Industrial Hygiene
- Profit and Cost Analysis
- Quality Assurance
Cooperative Education is available on an optional basis in this academic program. To obtain additional information on program benefits, eligibility requirements, or to apply for the program, contact the Career Center at 330-972-7747 or at http://www.uakron.edu/career/ no later than the beginning of the second semester.
