Program Map

TCC's Manufacturing Engineering classes follow the objectives of the Certified Production Technician, which adheres to specifications set by the Manufacturing Standard Skills Certification, a national industry-standard certifying body.

Graduates of the TCC program are eligible to take the CPT national certification. In addition, graduates earn 12 college credit hours within the Engineering Technology degree program and receive a TCC Workforce Certificate of Achievement. Each class is worth three college credits, is stackable, and could lead to an Associate in Engineering Technology or a more advanced degree.

Training is based on the Certified Production Technician.

Technical instruction develops skills in four key areas:

  • Safety covers topics such as responsibilities, inspection, emergency preparedness, workplace behavior, ear and eye wear, equipment handling, etc.
  • Quality includes blueprint reading (assemblers, fasteners, geometric dimensioning, tolerancing, etc.), tape and precision measurement, dimensional gauging, quality systems and more.
  • Manufacturing Processes and Production focuses on product creation, mechanical principles (concepts, force measurements, torque and moments, levers and mechanical advantage) mechanical linkages, machining processes, machine operation, production workflow, etc.
  • Maintenance Awareness touches on basic electric circuits, pneumatic power systems, hydraulic power systems, lubrication concepts, belt/chain drives, machine control concepts, etc.

The Advanced Manufacturing and Related Pathways grant at TCC is a $2.5 million award from the U.S. Department of Labor. The grant allows TCC to build linkages between secondary, community colleges, four-year institutions, and community partners to create new career pathways in the manufacturing and related industries.
