The Manufacturing Technology programs include three Associate in Applied Science degrees, four certificates of completion, industry skills workshops, and courses leading to industry-recognized credentials. Our Associate degrees offer transfer pathways to many four-year institutions.
Many of the Manufacturing Technology programs and courses offered are part of the Arizona Regional Advanced Manufacturing Professional Upgrade Project (AZ RAMP UP), a four-college consortium that received a $10 million federal training grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration. Students enrolled in the AZ RAMP UP programs have access to grant-funded specialty services such as career planning assistance and enhanced lab equipment.
The AZ RAMP UP programs provide Veterans, trade-impacted workers, and others with the knowledge, skills and abilities required for the efficient engineering, operation, and maintenance of the advanced manufacturing, energy, and logistics industries of today and the future.
“It is an honor to host this event to celebrate National Manufacturing Day and showcase how federal financial support is being used for state-of-the-art facilities to elevate the learning experience for our students. Our students will graduate with the skills Arizona's high tech industries are seeking.”
--Jeremy Medford, Manufacturing Technology Faculty.
