COURSE NUMBER: MFRG101
COURSE TITLE:Introduction to Manufacturing
DIVISION:Technology
IAI CODE(S):
SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS:2.0
DELIVERY MODE:

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course is designed to provide an overview and foundation for persons interested in or currently employed in the manufacturing industry. The class provides the student abbreviated instruction in a variety of academic, skill and attitude areas considered to be an integral part of successful employment within the industry. Students will engage in learning activities focused upon mathematics, precision measuring, employee "soft" skills, safety, quality, blueprint reading and basic manufacturing processes. Overall, the class will explore the various roles and responsibilities of employees related to production and company performance. This course is considered to be an excellent beginning course to expose the student to the many areas involved in a certificate or Applied Science degree program in the manufacturing area.
