Associate of Science in Manufacturing Technology
Designed for those interested in the hands-on side of the manufacturing field, the online Associate of science in manufacturing technology program at Trine University emphasizes design for manufacturability and practical skills to create a work-ready technologist. The ASMT degree is an excellent fit for students who have an interest or experience in manufacturing/production, an assembly operation or have acquired knowledge of basic CAD programs or other manufacturing specialties such as CNC machining or robotics.
Unique to this online program is the inclusion of various hands on learning assignments. For example in one course a kit of measurement instruments and lab instructions are made available to students resulting in relevant hands on metrology skills. Students can transfer these newly learned abilities directly to their careers in the manufacturing industry.
Coursework in the manufacturing technology program prepares students to be productive members of the manufacturing team. The ASMT degree places an emphasis on manufacturing processing, quality assurance, and overall manufacturing operations, to provide immediate skills that employees need upon entering the workforce.
Graduates with an Associate of science in manufacturing technology degree will be able to provide technical assistance throughout the manufacturing and design process. They will also be prepared to pursue a Bachelor of science in manufacturing technology or other related degree programs in the future.
