Computer Integrated Manufacturing, Associate in Applied Science

Florissant Valley

This program prepares students for positions in manufacturing. The program is designed to accommodate new students as well as those individuals already working in the field.

Graduates will know how to translate general ideas of the engineer into specific, detailed plans and communicate those plans to other people in the organization. Depending on the electives chosen, students will be prepared for work in automation, facilities maintenance, production operations, quality, technical graphics or other areas of the manufacturing enterprise.
