This course is the study of basic manufacturing skills needed in the science manufacturing industry. The class addresses the core
technical competencies required for skilled production occupations in all sectors of manufacturing. These competencies include
1) Math and measurement, 2) Manufacturing technology and spatial reasoning, 3) Basic chemistry, 4) Basic physics and
5) Business acumen and quality. It is recommended that the student completes Introduction to Engineering & Design prior to this
course and Computer Integrated Manufacturing (STA) following this course. This course will prepare students to complete the
MT1 Certification, a certification which qualifies students to work in some of the largest industries in the Midwest. The three courses
together allow students to successfully find employment in highly skilled jobs in Science and Technology firms.
