Conceptualize. Innovate. Create. Manufacture.

Manufacturing has a dramatic impact on how we live, continually bringing us products in nearly every category and industry that contribute to our quality of life.

We like to think of manufacturing as a field that combines imagination and the latest technology to solve problems and create better products for the future. Make that future yours at Waubonsee.

Here you can explore the entire process "from art to part"—conceptualize, innovate, create, manufacture—while building workplace-relevant skills quickly and on your schedule.
