Advanced Manufacturing Technology B.A.S.


The Advanced Manufacturing Technology will provide students with a strong background in traditional methods while emphasizing new and emerging manufacturing methods. Students will acquire the specialized skills needed to digitize and computer model manufacturing processes including integrated simulations of multiple processes representing an entire plant. Foundational course work in materials and material processing will also be stressed

Upon graduation students will be able to apply commercially current methods of manufacturing in addition to creating simulations of these manufacturing processes enabling accurate detailed understanding of the dynamics of the process. These skills will promote identification and resolution of potential failures and bottlenecks. The creation of the simulations will require the exercise of the digital scanning skills included in the curriculum. The student's process knowledge gained through simulation skills will be directly applicable to the design and operation of real processes on the shop floor.

The curriculum utilizes multiple, state of the art, additive manufacturing technologies in conjunction with commercial CNC machine tools and state of the art, computerized metrology systems. The multiple scanning technologies and industrially current software are used in the instruction of collecting and processing digital data for integration into the multi-level computer simulation(s).

The successful graduate will have possible employe with major manufacturing firms, processing industries such as gas and oil industry, mining and food processing in addition to the construction industry, architecture also, film and media. The broad scope of the curriculum will provide a good preparation for entrepreneurial opportunities.
