Advanced Manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing is a two-year program that gives students an excellent background if they are interested in design or mechanical engineering.  Students prepare for careers in machining technologies, which includes machining, mold making, tool and die, and machine repair in a state-of-the-art lab.
