Program Summary

The purpose of this certificate is to prepare students for initial employment with an occupational title as Engineering Support Specialist or Engineering Specialist in various specialized areas to support engineering design, manufacturing processes and production, testing, and/or maintaining product quality, or to provide supplemental training for persons previously or currently employed in these occupational areas.

This 18 credit hour certificate has been defined to align with the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council's (MSSC) skills standards. MSSC skill standards define the knowledge, skills, and performance needed by today's frontline manufacturing workers. After completing this core and the General Education requirements in the A.S. degree, it is anticipated that students will be prepared to pass the MSSC Production Technician Certification.

These courses are also part of the 60-credit hour Associate in Science Degree in Engineering Technology.
