People working in manufacturing plan, manage, and perform the processing of materials into finished goods. They also conduct related professional and technical support activities, such as production planning and control, maintenance, and manufacturing/process engineering.
This program introduces students to various disciplines in robotics, 3D design, advanced manufacturing techniques, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering. Students learn fundamental concepts and participate in hands-on projects that provide a strong understanding of the technical skills required for success. Knowledge gained will help them make informed decisions about their postsecondary choices in college and career pathways.
Developed and continually reviewed by an advisory group of industry professionals from across the Hudson Valley, this program is designed to help students become workforce ready with current skills and training to work with today’s tools, technologies, and materials of advanced manufacturing. Skills are developed in robotic design and coding, 3D computer aided design (Solidworks), 3D printing, precision measurement, and computerized numerical control (CNC) machining.
The Ulster BOCES Robotics & Advanced Manufacturing program is recognized by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification program, which allows graduates to enter the workforce with a nationally recognized NIMS certification in metalworking. Students also have the potential to receive certifications from Mastercam and Solidworks. Academic instruction in NYS Common Core English language arts, mathematics, and science is integrated into the curriculum. Students can earn credits for English, math, and science.
Shape your future by enrolling in the Welding and Metal Fabrication program. Students learn to weld metal parts according to work orders, layouts, or blueprints, using braze welding, oxyacetylene welding, gas metal arc welding, shielded metal arc welding, or gas tungsten techniques. Combination welders also perform related tasks such as grinding, drilling, and oxyacetylene flame cutting. Students are trained to plan, layout, and assemble welding projects.
Academic & Certificates:
Academic instruction in NYS Common Core English language arts, mathematics, and science is integrated into the curriculum. Students can earn credits for English, math, and science. Upon successful completion of all requirements, students will also have the opportunity to receive certification from the American Welding Society.
College Credit Opportunities:
Students have the potential to earn 3-6 college credits through articulation agreements with SUNY Delhi and Hudson Valley Community College. Additional articulation agreements are always being pursued.
