A.A.S. Degree: 64 Hours

Manufacturing Technology is a cross-disciplinary program which allows the student to chart a personalized path to a degree and certificates by taking several required courses along with courses chosen from any of our manufacturing-related degree programs. Classes from Industrial Systems Technology (IST), Drafting and Design Technology (DDT), Precision Machining Technology (PMT), Welding (WLD) and other related electives can be combined to lead to the MFG degree.

This program is intended to help employers create a professional training plan for their employees that leads to a degree and/or certificates, and exactly fits the needs of the employee for the particular position they are in. Further post-degree training can lead to the top level certificate and prepare employees for management and supervisory roles. Student enrollment must be preceded by an advising consultation with one or more of the department chairs of the above programs to create a degree/certification plan for individuals or groups of employees. Contact the department chair for more information.

The Missouri Department of Higher Education has identified a common set of general education courses that have been adopted statewide. These courses are called the “CORE 42.”  CORE 42 courses are guaranteed to transfer to any Missouri public college or university to satisfy general education requirements.

Courses in knowledge areas below, designated with the CORE 42 logo indicates courses in that area have been evaluated and provided a MOTR number for transfer to all Missouri public institutions of higher education.

Courses that do not have this designation may still transfer to public and private colleges and universities in Missouri and elsewhere, but students are encouraged to check the transfer equivalency website of the institution to which they plan to transfer to confirm.
