The plastics forming industry continues to grow nationally and locally. Upon graduating from this program, you'll be ready to enter the workforce or transfer as a junior to Ferris State University to complete a Manufacturing Engineering Technology bachelor's degree.
An increasing variety of automotive parts, household goods, furniture, and more are formed from plastic, and trained workers are in short supply.
Why Plastics-Polymer Engineering Technology at A.A.A.S (FSU-Manufacturing Engineering Technology)?
- The Plastics-Polymer Engineering Technology program prepares people for jobs as laboratory technicians, mold designers, production supervisors, mold technicians and plastics machinery maintenance technicians for the rapidly growing local plastics forming industry.
- Coursework will emphasize injection molding, the most prevalent process in plastics-polymer engineering. You'll also learn blow molding, extrusion, thermoforming and many secondary processes.
- We'll prepare you for an in-demand workforce, in West Michigan and beyond.
- Some advanced-standing credit may be granted to entering graduates of high school machine tool and drafting programs that are members of the Kent Metropolitan Articulation Project.
- Courses may be taken in any order as long as all requirements (including prerequisites) are met.
