Manufacturing Technology Diploma

Program Code: D50320A

In our Manufacturing Technology diploma program, you will learn about the processing and design of composite structures and composite materials testing. Processes include compression molding, vacuum-assisted transfer molding, and resin transfer molding. Testing includes impact, shear, compression, flexure, and tension tests based on anisotropic (dependent on the direction of the material) theory and stress analysis.

Upon completion, you will be able to fabricate, repair, and fasten composite structures to meet blueprint specifications, as well as perform testing of the structures using specialized equipment.

This is a diploma program and requires fewer credits and less time to complete than a degree program. If you’re looking for an even quicker option, the certificate program may be for you.

The Manufacturing Technology program also offers degree and multiple certificate options.
