Process Engineering Technology - Quality Assurance
Program Number: 10-623-8
School Year: 2013-2014
Associate of Applied Science Degree
Campus: Fond du Lac, some courses also offered at the West Bend campus
The Process Engineering Technology program combines the foundational skills related to industrial engineering with the skills of computerized manufacturing. Students learn the planning, setup, monitoring, analyzing and controlling of integrated systems in order to improve efficiencies in a manufacturing environment, standardize and streamline processes, and initiate cost savings for businesses. Applications in safety, sustainability, problem solving and automated technologies are emphasized.
Although a broad range of manufacturing skills are covered, students in the final stages of coursework 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.
