- Natural gas major
- More Information about Manufacturing Engineering Technology
Manufacturing Engineering Technology is structured to support manufacturing operations where engineers pass plans and projects to mid-management personnel, who must carry out the planning, organization and delivery of manufacturing projects. The curriculum has a strong emphasis in manufacturing, automation, and metals-oriented industries. Students have the opportunity to prepare for mid-management and supervisory positions, as well as technical positions, sales, service or research. National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) accreditation enables our certified faculty to offer NIMS certification exams to our students. Students who successfully earn NIMS certification enjoy a competitive edge in the job market.
Manufacturing engineering technologist, manufacturing management, manufacturing process engineering technologist, line supervisor, research and development technologist, industrial/technical representative, industrial/technical sales, production technologist.
Recommended High School Subjects
A strong background in high school math and sciences is desired. An awareness of computer application and software also is desired.
Special Equipment Needs
Students will be required to have the tools listed on the Manufacturing Engineering Technology website.
All entering students will be tested for English, math, and reading deficiencies. Students are expected to remediate any deficiencies as explained in this online catalog (see http://www.pct.edu/catalog/PlacementTesting ). They should do so prior to enrollment and in the following order of priority: mathematics, English, reading.
This major is subject to the transfer standards established by the College (see http://www.pct.edu/catalog/TransferringCredits ). Exceptions must be approved by the school dean.
Program GoalsA graduate of this major should be able to:
- solve manufacturing problems using computer hardware and software.
- solve manufacturing problems using scientific principles and methodology.
- analyze problems and solve manufacturing problems of an economic, technical, organization, and design variety.
- analyze and recommend solutions of manufacturing problems of the moral, ethical, and legal nature.
- analyze issues of quality assurance and recommend systems, procedures, and techniques to meet quality standards.
- program computers, CNC machines, and other automated manufacturing equipment.
- contribute to an industrial design team in the design, redesign, and upgrade of products to achieve improved manufacturability, aesthetics, and function.
- demonstrate discipline to specific skills and knowledge of tools, equipment, systems, materials, processes, and procedures to solve manufacturing and production problems.
- plan, organize, and carry out engineering technology projects under supervision.
- demonstrate skill and knowledge in the selection and use of appropriate materials.
- demonstrate leadership skills, ethical behavior, and knowledge of management dynamics.
- demonstrate knowledge of the organization and functions in a manufacturing concern.
