Power Outage

Power is coming back to much of campus, however, the Internet and Outlook servers are still out in parts of campus.  Classes are being held at professor's discretion.    PPL and Millersville University are working on the problem.

AET/M Advanced Manufacturing Technology

Bachelor of Science (AETM): Advanced Manufacturing Technology Option

Bachelor of Science, Applied Engineering & Technology Management: Advanced Manufacturing Technology Option

The Advanced  Manufacturing Technology option is designed to provide students with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills that are essential for careers in today’s manufacturing industries. Courses included in this option provide introductory and advanced experiences in computer-aided drafting and design (CADD) and polymer, ceramic, metal, wood and composite materials and processes for manufacturing. Computer numerical control (CNC) programming and machining of a variety of industrial materials is featured. Technical electives included in this option permit student exposure to materials testing, machine tool design, power conversion and control, and robotics. All courses include practical laboratory experiences that enable students to work with industrial materials, tools and equipment for product development. Graduates typically work in technical sales involving materials, products and systems of manufacturing as industrial trainers, manufacturing engineers or as supervisors or managers of technical operations.


Upon the completion of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology option, the student will be able to:

  • Design products utilizing (CADD).
  • Analyze, select and use industrial materials for production including polymers, ceramics, metals, woods and composites.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in the manufacturing processes of casting, forming, separating, conditioning, assembling and finishing.
  • Program and operate computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools utilized in manufacturing.
  • Employ computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) for the design, development and production of manufactured goods.
  • Organize, manage and control a manufacturing environment.
  • Demonstrate behavioral patterns that include communication skills, safe and efficient individual and group work habits, leadership within groups, and an attitude of cooperation and tolerance.
  • Describe the impact of various manufacturing systems on society today.
  • Recognize, evaluate and control varied industrial health and safety hazards.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of traditional management functions and practices, including applications and limitations of various management schemes.
  • Perform production scheduling, develop and monitor an inventory control system, utilize appropriate production planning techniques, and identify and exhibit key factors in project management.
  • Solve problems in typical industrial organizations, work effectively in teams, and demonstrate knowledge of the managed area of an industrial enterprise.
  • Use appropriate statistical techniques in variable and attribute control charts and in sampling tables.
