Manufacturing Engineering Technology with Quality Concentration
Why Choose Manufacturing Engineering Technology with Quality Concentration?
The field of quality is becoming increasingly important in industry and business. This area is so important to manufacturing, in fact, that representatives from industry and the American Society for Quality Control worked with the FSU Manufacturing Engineering Technology faculty to create this unique concentration. This program is for individuals employed in quality or quality related fields or who desire to become employed in a quality position within a manufacturing company. The program is designed for those who wish to expand and build upon the base of technical knowledge they have acquired through work experience and academic training. Ferris has tailored the program for the part-time student by offering courses at night at the Advanced Technology Center in Grand Rapids.
Graduates of the program are prepared to assume technical and leadership positions in all areas of quality within a variety of industries including automotive, aerospace, office furniture, medical manufacture, and food processing. Graduates are prepared to advance into such positions as quality engineer, quality manager, plant manager, and project engineer.
To be admitted to this degree program you must have completed at least 57 transferable semester credit hours (“C” or better) from an accredited college or university with a 2.5 overall GPA. We do not require the completion of an A.A.S. degree for entry. Included in the 57 transferable credits you must have completed some specific speech, English, math, science, general education, and technical courses. These typically can be completed within an A.A.S. degree at a local community college.
