Process Engineering Technology - Quality Assurance
Program Number: 10-623-8
School Year: 2015-2016
Associate of Applied Science Degree
Campus*: Fond du Lac, some courses available at the West Bend campus
Process Engineers provide big-picture thinking from the design phase to production and every step in between, ensuring processes are as cohesive and efficient as possible.
Moraine Park's Process Engineering Technology associate of applied science degree program combines the foundational skills related to industrial engineering with those of computerized manufacturing. Students learn how to plan, set up, monitor, analyze and control integrated systems in order to improve efficiencies in a manufacturing environment. They also learn how to standardize and streamline processes to find cost savings for businesses. Applications in safety, sustainability, problem solving and automated technologies are emphasized.
In the final stages of coursework, students select a specialized training emphasis in either Industrial/Manufacturing or Quality Assurance.
Representatives from business and industry have identified skills that are essential to success in manufacturing. Students will be expected to demonstrate the Critical Core Manufacturing Skills (CCMS) throughout all manufacturing classes. These skills include: work cooperatively, work productively, listen effectively, demonstrate a positive attitude, maintain a safe work environment, demonstrate integrity, communicate clearly, follow directions, apply problem solving strategies, apply mathematical reasoning, think critically and adapt to change.
Graduates are trained to work as members of teams consisting of engineers and production workers in a variety of industrial and manufacturing settings.
