Manufacturing Engineering Technology Overview

The application of flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) to the totally automated factory requires technicians who are able to function in the world of robots, computerized numerical control (CNC) machines, computer aided drafting and design (CADD), automated warehousing systems, and the total flexible manufacturing network.

 The Manufacturing Engineering Technology program at Rhodes State is designed specifically to prepare students for technician-level employment in the fields of robotics, automated systems, and associated areas under the broad umbrella of FMS.  The curriculum combines course offerings from the Electronic Engineering Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology programs and includes manufacturing specific courses while maintaining the same general studies and related studies required by those majors. During the program, students will demonstrate field experience in a related job and culminate their work with a CAPSTONE project to demonstrate the skills they have attained.

Scholarship Opportunity 

Rhodes State has been awarded a Choose Ohio First (COF) Scholarship grant by the Ohio Department of Higher Education. The grant provides scholarships to students majoring in disciplines that significantly strengthen Ohio’s competitiveness in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Medicine (STEMM) education and industry.
