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.

Certified Production Technician (CPT)

SUNY Ulster has partnered with local manufacturers to offer this course to prepare job seekers and employees with the skills needed to work in a manufacturing environment. The Certified Production Technician (CPT) program recognizes, through certification, individuals who demonstrate mastery of the core competencies of manufacturing production: Safety, Quality Practices & Measurement; Manufacturing Processes & Production, and Maintenance Awareness. This course will raise the level of performance of production workers, assisting individuals in finding higher-wage jobs and helping employers ensure their workforce increases the company's productivity and competitiveness. Non-credit bearing course price does not include the MSSC registration fee and MSSC assessment fee for the four assessments to achieve certification. Students registering for the non-credit bearing course must also register for DCB 2346 to obtain the assessments needed for certification.  Communication from SUNY Ulster and the student will be through SUNY Ulster e-mail communication. You will be asked to monitor that e-mail before and during this course.

Fundamental Concepts of Metrology

This course teaches students to interpret the symbols and measurements that appear on technical drawings, necessary for machine operators, supervisors, inspectors, and other manufacturing personnel. Hands-on exercises, sketching, and group projects will be included in lessons. Topics covered: line types, basic symbols, basic multi-views, dimensions, tolerances, auxiliary views, assembly drawings, threads and fasteners, ANSI symbols, finishes, and sectional views. This course also covers basic measurement and math concepts required in a manufacturing environment. The application of fractions, decimals, metric and standard units, and algebra will be the initial focus, using industry-specific examples to develop students’ mechanical problem solving skills. Basic geometry and trigonometry for calculating unknown dimensions, angles, areas, weights, and volumes will be covered. The course will incorporate work readiness and teamwork skill training. Communication from SUNY Ulster and the student will be through SUNY Ulster email communication. You will be asked to monitor that email before and during this course.
