Automated manufacturing specialists are in high demand in Utah. Utah’s manufacturing industry employs people in every industry from Electronics to Aerospace. 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.
Graduates of this program will learn to utilize industry-standard tools, manufacturing equipment, and procedures for automated manufacturing. You will learn important manufacturing principles such as 6 Sigma, lean manufacturing, and 5S’s. These skills will help you make your workplace and station efficient and reduce variation in work.
In your coursework you will learn how to design products through a 3D computer-automated drafting program, prototype products using 3D printers, and learn how to build products 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.
Previous graduates have found success as assembly line leads and technicians, automated technicians, robotic specialists, machine technicians and operators, rapid prototypers, and automated troubleshooters.
Adults and high school students who are age 16 and older and at least a junior in high school.
Registration is open on the last Monday of each month. Students usually start the first Monday of the following month. To check seat availability, create a new student account in the MTECH Student Portal and check seat availability or call Student Services at 801-753-6282.
