Our state-of-the-art equipment, labs and classroom facilities allow faculty to teach students using the latest technology in the field.  Our program is growing which means there is a need for an experienced professional who can share their knowledge and enthusiasm with our students as an adjunct Manufacturing Technology instructor.
