ABOUT THE PROGRAM
This degree is designed to provide students with the fundamentals of the manufacturing process. Students will learn the technological processes used in industry to function in a manufacturing business and to increase overall efficiency and productivity in manufacturing. The program focuses on how a product is manufactured, distributed, documented and supported. Disciplines in industrial robots, computer-aided drafting, computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), programmable logic controllers, material handling, storage, and inventory control are included in the curriculum. Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared for entry-level positions in manufacturing technology or may transfer to a four-year institution that offers bachelor’s-level industrial/manufacturing programs.
“My family’s future...that’s what I thought of when I became one of the first students in John Wood’s manufacturing technology program. I needed to expand my skills and earn a degree so I could become a more valuable employee. That’s exactly what happened, and I’m grateful to the instructors and my family who made it all work. Opportunities are endless with the programs at John Wood. You can do the same, all while working and raising your family.”
