Manufacturing Technology Degrees

The Manufacturing Technology program is designed to provide a multi-disciplined technical background in fields for which NMC does not offer a specific program. For instance, students interested in pursuing careers in Advanced Manufacturing or Welding may enroll in the Manufacturing Technology program and design a model schedule that emphasizes their major area of interest.

The program has the flexibility to match the student’s interest with the skills necessary for job entry. Students, with assistance from an advisor, will select a major area of technical emphasis. These technical courses plus supporting courses from other disciplines comprise the Manufacturing Technology degree requirements.

Each student’s proposed Manufacturing Technology program must be approved by a committee consisting of the appropriate Department Head, the Academic Chair, and the Registrar.
