Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology, BS

Bachelor of Science in Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology (287103BS)

More on the Advanced and Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology programs

Program Information

Graduates of the Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology degree will possess knowledge in robotics, computer integrated manufacturing, computer numerical control, manufacturing processes, manufacturing operations management, and quality control techniques to enter technologist level careers in process and system design, manufacturing operations, maintenance, and technical sales or service.

The first two years can be completed as the AAS degree in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology (288006AAS). Students holding a different relevant associate degree or having completed the first two years of a relevant bachelor degree program can bridge to the final two years of the BS in Automated Manufacturing Engineering Technology using the bridgework shown.

Required Bridgework

  1. Completion of a relevant associate degree program in engineering, science, or business technology (or related) or the first two years of a relevant bachelor degree program with a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
  2. Completion of AMET:241 Introduction to Quality Assurance or equivalent with a minimum grade of C.
  3. Completion of AMET:110 Manufacturing Processes or equivalent with a minimum grade of C.
  4. Completion of AMET:248 Introduction to CNC and Additive Manufacturing or equivalent with a minimum grade of C.

Cooperative Education

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