Advanced manufacturing technicians set up, test, and calibrate manufacturing machinery or equipment using any combination of electrical, electronic, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic and computer technologies. They require skills in automation of manufacturing systems/mechatronics, robotics, industrial control systems, and the Internet of Things. Graduates of this program will be prepared for careers including advanced manufacturing technician, mechanical technician, mechatronics technician, maintenance process technician, electrical service technician, quality services, and more.

Advanced Manufacturing

Industry 4.0 or “smart factories” and Advanced Manufacturing are all basically the same idea. This is where we find data, automation, machines, robots and humans working together to produce desired products. Manufacturing combines mechanical, electronic and information technology to streamline the manufacturing process through intelligent automation. Advanced manufacturing facilities use advanced software and robotics technology to make their processes as efficient as possible.
