OCTE Poster ManufacturingManufacturing is the transformation of materials into products to meet human needs and wants. Manufacturing technology courses provide students with opportunities to acquire knowledge and skills in the areas of mechanical engineering, robotics and control systems, computer-aided manufacturing, industrial maintenance, precision machining, welding, and sheet metal.

Students will use a broad range of tools and equipment while acquiring engineering, fabrication, and problem-solving skills through the design and fabrication of various projects. Manufacturing courses will also help students understand the effects of manufacturing technology on the environment and society.

Manufacturing courses are designed for students heading to an apprenticeship, to college or university, or directly to the workplace in their pursuit of careers such as tradesperson, technician, technologist, engineer, or any of the skilled entry positions.
