Advanced Manufacturing Pathway
Start A Career While You Continue Towards A Degree
FLCC offers a unique Advanced Manufacturing pathway that allows you to launch a career and pursue an education all at once. By starting with Advanced Manufacturing (ADM) courses, you'll gain a strong foundation to enter our A.A.S. in Smart Systems Technologies program, or begin a variety of careers in electronics, engineering, manufacturing, and production.
The Advanced Manufacturing pathway features four ADM courses. By completing these courses, you'll gain the knowledge required to obtain industry certifications, such as the OSHA-10 Safety Certification, and the skills and confidence needed to thrive in a manufacturing career. You'll prepare to safely step into a production facility, and operate equipment effectively and efficiently. Successful completion of all four ADM courses will grant you a "Certified Production Technician" credential, accredited by the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC).
The Smart Systems Technologies program is directed by Sam Samanta. Working with approximately 40 businesses across diverse local industries, Dr. Samanta identifies opportunities for paid co-ops in the high-tech field, which lead to exciting careers for graduates of this program.
