    Overview

    Welcome to SCC's Manufacturing Engineering Technology program. We train students to become members of an engineering team. They provide technical assistance throughout the design and manufacturing process. The program includes extensive practice in traditional and computer-aided drafting, layout and design of fabricated products, the study of materials used in manufacturing, plant layout, materials handling, manufacturing processes, and the use of machines. Further study takes students into quality control, time and motion efficiency, tool and product design, and mold design. The Student Chapter of the Society for Manufacturing Engineers S218 provides a chance to learn more about industry and to interact and mentor with other engineers. The program is fully accredited by the state of Nebraska and by the Higher Learning Commission. Students who earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology can earn up to 90 hours to Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph and earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Manufacturing Engineering.

    Mission

    The mission of the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program is to educate and prepare students to take on today's engineering and manufacturing challenges.

    Employment Outlook

    Employment of engineers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations during the next decade. Growth will vary by specialty. In addition, to some growth in employment opportunities for professional workers in the industry, there will be many job openings arising from replacement needs, especially for aerospace engineers. SCC graduates report an average starting salary of $41,912.
