Manufacturing jobs today make up more than 10 percent of all jobs in the state of Connecticut. Through attrition and the need for a highly skilled workforce, manufacturers are facing a shortage of skilled workers. This could be an opportunity to explore a career doing interesting work at a higher-than-average pay rate, with full benefits. Students completing this program can find careers as CNC (Computer Numerical Control) operators, inspectors and Tool & Die apprentices. Students wishing to advance their careers may do coursework on a full-time basis and complete the program within one year or on a part-time basis. We are currently offering a part-time night and weekend program. This program is designed to appeal to students that don’t have the time to enroll and complete coursework as full-time college students. The goals are to encourage single parents and those that feel they are underemployed to pursue careers in manufacturing and to provide the opportunity for completion of the program within two years.
A Graduation Checklist is a printable list of course requirements you will use when you meet with your academic advisor each semester. The checklist helps you keep track of your progress from when you first enter MxCC to when you are ready to graduate.
