W elcome to the Composites Science and Manufacturing

The Composites Science and Manufacturing program provides education and real world experiences in a state of the art lab that prepares students for entry into many advanced manufacturing industries as a materials/composites technician, shop foreman, fabricator, or materials testing technician.

Students who earn the Composite Technology degree begin by taking the technical courses required for a job in the field as a foreman with the option to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Students may choose to pursue a bachelor of science degree in industrial engineering or technical management after completing the associate degree.

The Composite Technology program is designed to provide students with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills that are essential for careers in today’s composite manufacturing industries. Courses included in this program provide introductory experience, computer-aided drafting and design (CADD), and composite materials and processes for manufacturing. Students are exposed to materials testing, machine tool design, power conversion and control. Technology courses include practical laboratory experiences that enable students to work with industrial materials, tools and equipment in product development.
