SUNY Broome’s Manufacturing Technology program prepares students for immediate employment in a variety of areas such as manufacturing processes, metrology, principles of continuous improvement, CNC and statistical quality control. It is designed for full-time, part-time, day or evening students who seek an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in a technical skills area with a non-calculus mathematics approach.
This program emphasizes the application of scientific and engineering knowledge combined with practical technical skills and methods in support of advanced manufacturing, and includes a capstone project. In addition, the program allows students to train in the highly technical specialty of Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) using state-of-the-art equipment. Students will gain valuable hands-on experience with popular CNC software packages.
