Many people believe that all manufacturing has moved offshore, but Ohio’s manufacturing industry is still alive and well. In fact, it remains one of Ohio’s most important economic activities, particularly in the manufacturing of transportation related materials such as fabricated metals and car and airplane parts.

Within this industry, engineering technicians help to make production more efficient by optimizing the layout of machinery and equipment, the flow of work, and the use of personnel. Engineering technicians need to understand the principles and theories of science, engineering and mathematics. They need to make statistical studies, analyze production costs, make sketches of plant space layouts, and test and inspect machines and equipment. The LCCC Manufacturing Engineering program will cover these skills and provide hands-on experience within computer aided machining, computer aided design, industrial and electrical equipment maintenance, or quality control.

The program offers short-term certificates that can be earned in one semester, one-year certificates, and Associate Degrees. Of course, you may choose to further your education beyond LCCC through our University Partnership or transfer programs.

Getting started while you’re still in high school

You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.

The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students. 

The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school!
