Advanced Manufacturing Certificate
The demand for manufacturing technicians exists throughout
McHenry County and the entire country. Every phase of
American life is dependent upon their efforts. Everything
that is planned and fabricated, from airplanes to sewing
machines, needs detailed designs that must first be tested
and then brought into production. As our society becomes
more automated and computer enhanced, the need for
these semi-professionals will continue to increase.
Manufacturing design and engineering technicians are
part of the engineer-scientist-technician team that designs
and produces a variety of products. Assignments include
traditional drafting, Computer Aided Design (CAD), implementing
engineering directives, material and product
testing, and customer service.
The Manufacturing Design Technology certificate program provides a number of options. You may wish to earn other related certificates in related manufacturing technologies, such as supervision or manufacturing process. Or, you can continue studies and earn an Associate in General Education (AGE). Check with the department chair regarding goals and the future transferability of coursework.
