Continuing Education

manufacturing Technology

In the 20-week course, students will learn to apply technical knowledge and skills to plan, manufacture, assemble, test, and repair parts, mechanisms, machines, and structures in which materials are cast, formed, shaped, molded, heat treated, cut, twisted, pressed, fused, stamped or worked.

Manufacturing Technology is an in-demand career path.  Machinists are hired by firms that perform repair, new product design, manufacturing, aircraft, logging and ship repair.

“The Manufacturing Technology course is a response to the request of Industry demand. We have had a consortium of machine tool businesses come together in request of skilled labor highlighting the basic fundamentals of machining. It is great seeing the labor demand return in St. Mary Parish,” stated Anthony Baham, Dean for Maritime and Continuing Education for SLCC’s Corporate College. “Students graduating this short-term program will have the proficiency in the basic fundamentals of manual machining. Additionally, students will get an introduction to the CNC process.”

This 400-hour course is taught at SLCC's Morgan City campus.
