Mercer County Community College
Advanced Manufacturing Technology
Certificate of Proficiency

The Advanced Manufacturing Technology program is designed to prepare students for the modern manufacturing environment. This certificate of proficiency is attractive to employers who implement team-oriented design, production, quality, and maintenance systems within the manufacturing environment.

American manufacturers are becoming increasingly dependent upon the use of high-tech equipment that involves multiple, integrated systems. It is crucial that these companies be able to recruit and employ individuals who know how to operate, troubleshoot, and maintain it.

The certificate program prepares students for apprentice/entry-level positions in shops and manufacturing facilities not only in the local area but almost anywhere in the country. Typical tasks include setting up and operating equipment such as engine or turret lathes, milling machines, and power presses. More advanced tasks may involve operating computer-controlled manufacturing equipment (CNC) as well as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) or robots for assembly lines.

Admission to the program requires a high school diploma or its equivalent with one year of algebra or applied mathematics.
