Automated Manufacturing

Automated manufacturing specialists are in high demand currently in Utah. There is a wide variety of manufacturing industries in Utah, everything from electronics to aerospace. Graduates of this program will learn to utilize industry-standard tools, manufacturing equipment, and procedures for automated manufacturing. Students will learn important manufacturing principles such as 6 Sigma, lean manufacturing, and 5S’s to make their workplace and station efficient and reduce variation in their work.

Our program focuses on a hands-on approach to specialize students in manufacturing equipment maintenance, operation, and the design of processes for new products being built. Students enrolled in Automated Manufacturing will learn how to design a product through a 3D computer-automated drafting program, and prototype this product using 3D printers, then how to build this product as quickly and efficiently as possible. Students will also learn several different systems that are used to create high-quality products consistently, including hydraulic and pneumatic, electronic, motor control, programmable logic controllers, and finish with assembly line robotics and mechatronics.

This program prepares students for employment as assembly line leads and technicians, automated technicians, robotic specialists, machine technicians and operators, rapid prototypers, and automated troubleshooters.
