Manufacturing Process Technology

Overview

The Manufacturing Process Technology Certificate is a two-semester (37 credit hour) program that addresses the fundamentals of manufacturing processes.

The program covers fundamentals of process technology including mechanical and electrical components, basic chemical processes, plant unit operations, and instrumentation. An elective course is included to broaden the student’s knowledge of electrical and/or chemical technology-related topics. Currently, the demand for manufacturing technicians in the Midlands area is significant and growing. This certificate is designed for the students needing a background in manufacturing technology. This certificate is considered an advanced certificate and is designed to easily go along with the Chemical Technology Certificates and/or the Mechanical Engineering Technology program. Graduates from this certificate program are qualified to enter the workforce as a medium-level operator, process technician, or senior manufacturing technician. The course sequence is designed to also prepare the student for more advanced on-the-job training in manufacturing processes.

Some courses within this certificate program require their own individual prerequisites. Students are eligible to enroll in this program only after those prerequisites are met.
