The Manufacturing Concentration of the Mechanical Engineering Technology degree program concentrates on gaining productivity, cost savings, and quality in the manufacturing and service industries. The Manufacturing Concentration emphasizes the application of high-tech production equipment, software, and techniques to achieve cost savings and quality in the manufacturing, service, and distribution industries. Hands-on, high-tech laboratories featuring computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM), automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS), bar-coding, computer-aided design (CAD), computer facilities layout, computer-numerical controlled (CNC) machining centers, and programmable logic controlled (PLC) robots, are combined with instruction on modern production techniques. Graduates can find a variety of employment opportunities in the areas of facilities layout, process development, product development, quality control, technical sales, and warehousing.
