CT State Community College Catalog 2023-2024

  • New students enrolling for the first time in Fall 2023 will begin as students of Connecticut State Community College under this catalog. 
  • Continuing students from one of the 12 community colleges will be transitioned into a CT State program in this catalog as of the start of the Fall 2023 term.
  • The policies, courses and programs described are applicable as of the Fall 2023 term and may be updated as circumstances require.

The Manufacturing Engineering Technology A.S. program emphasizes the application of mathematics and principles of engineering science to manufacturing processes and concepts in order to prepare students for transfer to baccalaureate programs in engineering and technology with a manufacturing focus. Upon successful completion of a degree program, MCC graduates may continue on with a full two years of credit towards a baccalaureate degree in engineering technology or industrial technology at Central Connecticut State University.

Also, as a standalone degree, the program gives credentials to those who are already employed in a manufacturing capacity who don’t possess a degree as well as prepares students for employment opportunities in entry and second-level positions in manufacturing and industrial technology fields requiring a combination of technical preparation and a strong general education background.

Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of all Manufacturing Engineering Technology degree program requirements, graduates will

  • Demonstrate team-oriented skills that permit effective participation in multicultural work and social environments.
  • Apply appropriate mathematical and scientific principles to manufacturing applications.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in manufacturing engineering fundamentals to analyze manufacturing engineering problems and make appropriate decisions.
  • Assist in the design process to meet effective production objectives.
  • Possess knowledge of engineering materials and be able to demonstrate competency in their selection and utilization in manufacturing.
  • Apply knowledge and skills to develop, interpret and select appropriate manufacturing processes.
  • Maintain a practical knowledge of state-of-the-art hardware and software in support of manufacturing systems.
  • Be aware of and use available information and data sources in support of the manufacturing systems.
  • Apply skills and knowledge to effectively and efficiently plan, organize, implement, measure and control manufacturing processes.
  • Demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of engineering graphics as well as engineering drawing interpretation and application of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing basics.
  • Demonstrate a high level of proficiency in the use of state-of-the-art computer-aided design (CAD) software and be able to respond positively to continuous software revisions and upgrades.
  • Demonstrate a thorough understanding of two-dimensional and isometric CAD concepts, procedures and applications.
  • Apply knowledge of computer applications in integrating computer-aided manufacturing, computer numerical control, CAD, spreadsheets, graphs and word processing for manufacturing engineering, and technology documentation and support purposes.
  • In addition, the graduate will complete the comprehensive learning outcomes identified with the General Education Core.
