The Industrial Technology: Manufacturing Technology Certificate program prepares individuals to enter the work force in the area of manufacturing by teaching basic skills needed in the use of lathes and milling machines. Attention will also focus on the proper use of precision measuring hand tools as they relate to lathes and milling machines and provide a basis upon which skills for additional precision hand tools could be developed.
The program will also provide an educational background for those students who choose to pursue a second year of study in industrial technology: Manufacturing or Industrial Technology: Drafting and Design.
This certificate program consists of two 15‐week semesters for a total of 311 college credits. Emphasis is placed upon acquiring collegiate level manufacturing/machine skills that are supported by related classes in mathematics, manufacturing processes, computers, drafting/blueprint reading, communication skills, and liberal arts. The two machining classes are offered at the Ulster County Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in the BOCES machine shop. Taught by the machining instructor(s) at BOCES, the classes will be under the supervision of SUNY Ulster.
Designed for either full‐time or part‐time study, some of the required classes will be offered on Saturdays.
At the completion of the Certificate in Manufacturing Technology program, a student will be able to
Students who complete the Industrial Technology: Manufacturing Technology certificate program will have the training needed for employment as machine specialists in the manufacturing field. A number of local industries have expressed interest in employing individuals with skills similar to those obtained from this program. In addition, certificate program graduates may seek to continue their studies toward an associate's or baccalaureate degree in the field, qualifying for higher‐level management positions in the work force.
