Advanced Manufacturing Technology
What is it?
Advanced Manufacturing is the path to a growth-oriented career that is hands-on and high-tech, in Aerospace, Submarines, Biomedical Technology and other exciting fields. Earn a certificate in fewer than 10 months, and benefit from a 90% placement rate upon completion. According to the state Department of Labor, manufacturing jobs in Connecticut paid an average salary of $81,390.
The High Job Demand In Connecticut
Connecticut is home to 4,011 manufacturing firms. As one of the largest contributors to Connecticut’s gross state product, manufacturing is experiencing a resurgence in the state.
From power tools to roof racks, jet engines to elevators, products made in Connecticut are sold throughout the U.S. and around the world.
The Machine Technology certificate and associate degree programs provide students with an advanced level of manufacturing skills sets for careers in CNC and other machining related-technologies.
Upon completion of the two-semester program, the student has options: career employment and part-time education leading to associate and four yea degrees (with real possibility of tuition reimbursement by your employer) or continue immediately in an associate degree program followed by career employment and further education.
