Whether you’re looking to advance your current career in manufacturing, or want to hit the ground running after high school, Moraine Park’s Fabrication Technologies associate degree prepares students for a precision-driven career making metal parts and components for a variety of household and industrial products.
Are you a very detail-oriented person with the desire to work with your hands AND make a difference? Moraine Park’s Fabrication Technologies degree gives students the knowledge and skills they need to increase productivity, innovation and competitiveness in the manufacturing industry.
Students gain fabricating skills in automated cutting, forming and welding processes that prepare them for obtaining the Precision Sheet Metal Certification from the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association.
Through our gas metal arc welding (GMAW), gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) and fabrication courses, students learn how to set up and operate metal fabrication, industrial welding and cutting equipment; interpret industrial prints; apply mathematical reasoning; and use various fabrication processes.
The coursework also includes topics in computer aided design (CAD); computer numerical control (CNC), advanced manufacturing planning and production; lean manufacturing practices; and quality applications used in today’s advanced manufacturing companies.
Working closely with business and industry representatives, MPTC’s Fabrication Technologies program is designed to help students demonstrate the Critical Core Manufacturing Skills (CCMS) throughout all the 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.
