More on the Advanced and Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology programs

Program Information

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.

Career Information

A graduate of this program finds employment in manufacturing supervision and control. Duties involve the design, modification, installation, and operation of advanced manufacturing systems, 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
  • Purchasing
  • Safety and Industrial Hygiene
  • Estimating
  • Profit and Cost Analysis
  • Quality Control and Assurance

Cooperative Education

Cooperative education work experiences are available on an optional basis in this academic program.

Bachelor Degree Programs

Upon completion of the Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology Associate of Applied Science Degree, a student may proceed to the Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science Degree. Please refer to the Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science Degree Curriculum Guide for further information. An additional degree option is to proceed to the Bachelor of Organizational Supervision Degree.

The following information has official approval of The Department of Mechanical Engineering ​and The College of Engineering and Polymer Science, but is intended only as a supplemental guide. Official degree requirements are established at the time of transfer and admission to the degree-granting college. Students should refer to the Degree Progress Report (DPR) which is definitive for graduation requirements. Completion of this degree within the identified time frame below is contingent upon many factors, including but not limited to: class availability, total number of required credits, work schedule, finances, family, course drops/withdrawals, successfully passing courses, prerequisites, among others. The transfer process is completed through an appointment with your academic advisor.

Transfer students should consult their Advisor to identify courses that are equivalent.
