Engineering Technology – Manufacturing Technology

Program Advisor: John Tatro 413-236-4630

The Manufacturing Technology option of the Engineering Technolgy degree program is designed to provide students with the basic skills they need for a career in the manufacturing field. Courses take place in campus classrooms and laboratories as well as off-campus locations with state-of-the-art equipment, software, and trianing facilities. The program is designed to offer flexibility while also providing students for elective options and technical internship opportunities that allow them to focus thier efforts in an area of specialization.

With proper preparation in physics and mathematics, students interested in transferring to a bacculaulreate instituition to thier education can do so by working closely with the program advisor to insure all prerequisites and requirements will be met.
