General Technology (Manufacturing Emphasis) AAS = Associate of Applied Science | 60 hours
Due to the increased mechanization and use of technology, the need for physical strength is no longer a requirement in most jobs, but rather skills and knowledge in industrial technology, operating specialized machinery, and understanding the systems and processes involved in the production of goods. American manufacturers are becoming increasingly dependent upon the use of high-tech equipment that involves multiple, integrated systems. Jobs in manufacturing usually involve planning, managing, and performing the processing of materials into intermediate or final products. It is critical that these companies be able to recruit and employ individuals who know how to operate, troubleshoot, and maintain this high-tech equipment.

PCCUA's has a state-of-the-art manufacturing lab, where students are able to learn valuable skills to prepare them for careers in industry. Embedded within the Associate of Applied Science in General Technology program are the Technical Certificate in Advanced Manufacturing, the Certificate of Proficiency in Advanced Manufacturing and the Certificate of Proficiency in HVAC.
