This program prepares engineering technologists for employment in advanced manufacturing. Students master engineering fundamentals through engineering design, manufacturing processes, computer programming, circuit theory, and digital electronics courses. Emphasis is placed on math and physical science. In the second year, students take advanced/specialized courses that focus on the application and integration of technology to product design and product manufacture.

Topics include robotics, machine vision, process automations, programmable logic controllers, motion control, and the use of computers for design and manufacture.
