Advanced Manufacturing

Calling all makers.

Manufacturing systems grow increasingly more complex each year. Through hands-on, project-based learning, Manufacturing students learn the processes and systems that drive modern production. For example, you might:

  • Build a humanoid robot. In Automation and Robotics, students construct basic robots that use sensors and actuators to solve specific problems. You’ll also learn how to program a humanoid robot capable of performing human-like tasks.
  • Draft blueprints for a housing subdivision. Architectural Drafting and Design students learn to sketch and interpret common construction documents, utilize 3-D drawing techniques, and use a computer-aided design system.
  • Prepare for a career in welding. By becoming proficient in everything from shielded arc welding to plasma cutting, students develop skills they can put to use immediately in the workforce.
