The Manufacturing Engineering Technology degree combines elements from Precision and CNC Machining, Mechanical, and Industrial Engineering Technology to prepare students to enter the exciting world of manufacturing. Students in this program are exposed to foundational courses in mathematics and physics as well as take courses in additive manufacturing, computer-aided design (CAD), prototyping, and manufacturing operations, and Six Sigma. Restricted to high school students enrolled in Sinclair's College Credit Plus (CCP) program
Since the Fall of 2017 our program has partnered with Sinclair to provide students the opportunity to get their Associates Degree while in high school. Students earn their 60+ College credits throughout their Junior and Senior coursework.
Interested students need to pass entrance exams to qualify for the degree. Students also earn industry certifications such as the CSWA & Six Sigma Green Belt Certification.
This is all provided at no cost to the student. Graduates from the program have continued their education at both the University of Dayton and Miami University to complete their Bachelors Degree.
