Computer Integrated Manufacturing Technology (AAS.CIM)

This program is designed to give the student a broad background in the basics of mechanics, fluid power, CAD, electronics and computer applications in manufacturing. Graduates will be prepared for the manufacturing jobs of the future in positions such as CAD/CAM operator/designer, manufacturing engineering technician, quality control technician, robotics technician, CNC operator/programmer, CIM technician or CIM equipment installer. Employment opportunities exist in many types of manufacturing industries, service industries and consulting firms. Students planning to continue their education at Eastern Illinois University or Southern Illinois University to earn a bachelor's degree in Industrial Technology or Applied Engineering should consult their advisor/counselor for course requirements and substitutions.

Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
