person in glasses working with equipmentAdvanced manufacturing is the use of innovative technologies and methodologies for improved competitiveness in the manufacturing sectors. The aim of advanced manufacturing is to enhance output; create quality valued added products that respond to market need; reduce the time to market with improved materials while controlling inventory.  Courses include those that teach new technologies such as 3D printing as well as foundational courses such as Fundamentals of Metrology Concepts.  Courses under this section can be stacked into Micro Credentials, certificates or degrees.  There are many local companies looking to employ people with these skills.
