Associate in Science Degree
To consider a career in manufacturing two myths must be dispelled. Myth number one: Manufacturing jobs are dirty, noisy, and repetitious. Most of these jobs have gone overseas and what remains are high tech jobs that require computer literacy, strong analytical and critical thinking skills, and the ability to work as a member of a team. Myth number two: There is no future in manufacturing. Manufacturing jobs make up more than 10% 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 rate of pay with full fringe benefits. Students completing this program can find careers as CNC (Computer Numerical Control) operators, inspectors and Tool & Die apprentices. Students completing a degree at a four-year institution can find careers in sales or management.
