Engineering Technology/Fabrication Certificate

Curriculum ENT.FAB.CERT (C448S)

(Total Program Credits: 24-26)

The Engineering Technology/Fabrication curriculum provides the student with field experience to advance their knowledge of modern elements of fabrication, from an introduction to manufacturing with shop safety and manual machining operations through the use of CAD/CAM software interfacing with automated CNC equipment. Also included in the certificate is a course on the basics of machine elements, needed in the repair and maintenance of the high-end equipment of today’s automated manufacturing facilities.


Upon successful completion of the Engineering Technology/Fabrication Certificate, the graduate will be able to:

  • utilize safety practices in the lab;
  • measure in the inches and metric systems;
  • identify elements on a blueprint;
  • document steps to fabricate a product;
  • identify different types of fabrication processes;
  • demonstrate use of basic math skills to fabricate a product; and
  • set for taking the national Certified Production Technician (MSSC-CPT) exam.

Placement Measures MAT, RHT, and COL sequence placement will be determined by an Academic Advisor. Contact your Academic Advisor or Transfer Specialist (if transferring), before registering for courses.
