Manufacturing Automation Certificate

This curriculum is designed to prepare a student for employment as an entry level technician in manufacturing automation. This program is designed to give students hands-on skills in electricity, sensors, robotics, CAD, CNC, machining, and programmable logic controllers (PLC’s). Upon completing this program students will be prepared to wok as an automation technician, electronics technician, manufacturing technician, or robotics technician. Students planning to transfer should consult with an MCC counselor. This is intended to go directly into the workforce.
