Manufacturing Technology I

 
 Manufacturing
 

You can be the next generation manufacturer. 

Today’s manufacturer works in a technological environment free from the grit and grime of the past.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (May 2014 analysis), the national median wage is $19.97 per hour with an annual income of $41,540.  New York State represents one of the states with the high employment rates, high concentration of jobs and high wages for manufacturers.  Skilled, high-end manufacturers in NYS can earn in excess of $60,000 annually.  The industry includes operations for a turned, molded or metalworking product; aerospace products and parts; automotive and locomotive products and parts; and much more.

The manufacturing industry is evolving.  The manufacturer of today will use a CNC machine (computer numerically controlled machine).  A CNC machine transforms various materials into exact specifications according to the blueprint.

This course will provide all the components needed to seek an entry-level assignment as a manufacturer.  The 21st century manufacturer will need to know the basics of math, computer operation and the inter-relationship of reading a blue print to the function of the final product.  The classroom will be combined with a lab experience on CNC machines.  The textbook is a software program in which students will have 24/7 access to learn the art of machining.  Flight simulator technology is used which shows the student how to operate a CNC machine in a safe, effective and efficient environment.

This program is approved by the NYS Bureau of Veterans Education.
