What is Advanced Manufacturing Systems (AUMF)?
AUMF is the study of how technology is applied in various types of industrial systems that are currently used in the manufacturing and service industries. Students take this knowledge and apply it to maintenance, troubleshooting and improvement of industrial systems such as plastics injection/blow molding machines, metal stamping systems, CNC machines, robotic systems, mechatronics, material handling equipment, as well as other process equipment.
The AUMF diploma program is designed for the student who wishes to prepare for a career as an industrial systems technician/electrician, maintenance technician/electrician, or electrical controls technician. The AUMF program provides learning opportunities that introduce, develop, and reinforce academic and technical knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. AUMF courses provide background skills in several areas of industrial maintenance including electronics, blueprint reading, problem-solving, industrial wiring, electric motor controls, PLC’s (Programmable Logic Controllers), instrumentation, fluid power (hydraulic and pneumatic), mechanical systems, pumps and piping, robotics, and basic welding/machining for repair. Additionally, the program provides opportunities to retrain or upgrade present knowledge and skills.
The AUMF degree program enhances the technical core courses of the diploma program with studies in reliability programs and technologies, robotics, college-level math and English, social sciences, and humanities.
