A & E Degree Program: Additive Manufacturing

YCCC Certificate Programs are intended to equip students who are looking to enter the job market quickly with the skills they need. All of YCCC’s Certificate Programs are “stackable” - designed to allow the student’s Certificate credits to transfer into the Associate Degree program. Many students are choosing this option which allows them to earn the credentials they need to get started in their chosen career field and then complete their degree part-time while working.  

Certificate programs at YCCC are designed to lead to either employment and/or college transfer, and we want to provide prospective students with gainful employment disclosure information prior to admission/enrollment in those programs.

Program Sheet

*Next Cohort Begins Fall 2021*
In the Additive Manufacturing Certificate program, students will learn about the evolution of digital fabrication with a full overview of the manufacturing industry and related technologies. Each hands-on, project-based learning (PBL) course will let students design and fabricate 3D objects using computer-aided design (CAD) software and 3D printers. They will experience the design process and become familiar with the advantages and limitations of each 3D printing technology in terms of precision, resolution, and material capabilities. Students will analyze real industry cases, and apply 3D printing technology appropriately while gaining hands-on experience with two leading 3D printing technologies employed in manufacturing today: Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) or Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) and PolyJet Modelling.
The sequencing of courses in this program begins in the fall semester. Students entering in the spring or summer will likely take longer than two semesters to complete the program. *Intended for part-time study
Career Opportunities
The Additive Manufacturing Certificate program prepares students for positions as Manufacturing Technicians, Prototyping Technician, Advanced Manufacturing Quality Technician, Process Designer or Mechanical Designer. The program teaches the latest in digital fabrication techniques and methods used in prototype and manufacturing.  Students who complete ADM 101 successfully will be eligible to take the exam that confer the first level of Industry Certification with Stratasys.
