Associate of Applied Science - Advanced Manufacturing Technology 

MACC's Associate of Applied Science – Advanced Manufacturing Technology program prepares the student for entry into the general, industrial, manufacturing field. Courses provide skills in basic electrical circuits, electric motor controls, machining, hydraulics, welding, maintenance management, quality control, and production planning. Most courses involve hands-on experience with up-to-date, high-technology equipment found in current manufacturing operations. Upon successful completion of all four Certified Production Technician (CPT) modules, students will receive certification from the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC).  

The CPT consists of the following four modules, in which students are eligible to receive four individual certifications:

  • Safety (10-Hour OSHA General Industry Card awarded upon completion)
  • Quality Practices & Measurement
  • Manufacturing Processes & Production
  • Maintenance

Academic Map

This academic map is a suggested semester-by-semester schedule of courses based upon the AAS degree requirements as outlined in the academic catalog. In order for you to graduate in two years, specific milestones, courses, and other requirements (e.g. prerequisites) must be met in a timely manner. To ensure that milestone courses are completed, it is important that you, when possible and appropriate, enroll in any needed developmental coursework during the first semester(s) of enrollment. Additionally, enrolling for courses during the summer session is an option and can reduce your regular course load and allow you to stay on track to graduate in two years. Finally, keep in mind this map does not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information.

*It is strongly recommended that students successfully complete the Milestone courses as planned on the academic map to ensure completion of the degree in two years. In addition, if students do not successfully complete the Milestone course(s), they are strongly encouraged to re-enroll in the course(s) the following semester.

**All fundamental math and English courses (e.g. MTH015) must be completed during the first semester. Required math and English courses must be completed immediately following the completion of fundamentals coursework or as listed on the degree map. Enrollment in fundamentals courses may delay completion of the degree. Fundamentals Courses are not included in the total credit hours required for the degree. 

^Please refer to the course descriptions for pre/co-requisite and placement information. You can only register for these courses if you have met the prerequisite, placed into the course and/or enroll in the co-requisite course(s).
