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.

Manufacturing at Waubonsee explores the entire process "from art to part"—conceptualize, innovate, create, manufacture—and offers four disciplines for students to build workplace-relevant skills and expertise. 

Real Preparation

Whatever discipline(s) you choose, you'll work with state-of-the-art machines, the latest industry software and our experienced faculty.

You can even stack certificates and degrees to become the multi-skilled technician that employers are seeking.
