Tuscaloosa, Alabama – Shelton State Community College is excited to announce its new Modern Manufacturing program. Created with the input of local business and industry leaders, the Modern Manufacturing curriculum will prepare students for successful employment in West Alabama. Scholarship options are available for students interested in beginning the program during the second term of the fall 2020 semester.
Modern Manufacturing guides students in applying basic manufacturing principles and technical skills to the identification and resolution of production problems. The new program includes instruction in machine operations, production line operations, systems analysis, instrumentation, physical controls, automation, manufacturing planning, quality control, and informational infrastructure.
“Although the program is new, this process began about two years ago when we spoke with industry leaders about filling production positions,” stated Grant Cockrell, Associate Dean of Technical Services. “In working together, we’ve created a program that will allow students not only to finish with a degree, but they’ll also receive industry certifications acknowledging their newly gained skillsets. We are very excited about the doors this will open for our graduates.”
Scholarship funding is available for a limited time. The deadline for Modern Manufacturing scholarship applications is October 6. Registration for the program is currently available for the second fall term with classes beginning October 12.
