Students gathered around table talking tech

The Manufacturing and Industrial Technology (MITECH) program provides engineering principles and technical skills for the manufacture of products and related industrial processes. Processes include shaping and forming operations, materials handling, instrumentation, controls, quality control, Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), and robotics. Optimization theory, industrial and manufacturing planning, and related management skills are also included in the discipline. The MITECH program offers several pathways through four certificates of achievement and one associate's degree to gain important job readiness skills in four areas of emphasis, Quality Technician. CAD/CAM Programming, Production Planning, and Manufacturing and Industrial Technology. The curriculum of the program is aligned with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Certified Manufacturing Technologist (CMfgT) list of core competencies. The program also supports the foundational skills for those planning to transfer to a four-year degree pathway related to manufacturing/industrial process and eventual SME Certified Manufacturing Engineering (CMfgE) goals through further study.
