About the program

Century College’s new Additive and Digital Manufacturing program addresses the needs of the workforce by training students in computer-based design/simulation, electronics, programming, mechanics, 3D printing, and automation to develop, operate and maintain advanced digital-based manufacturing systems and processes currently used in business and industry.

The degree is comprised of two aspects, Additive and Digital:

Additive Manufacturing (3D printing) is becoming commonplace across the globe, from rapid prototype uses, medical modeling, and tooling to low-volume end-use production parts. Students are taught a variety of 3D printing technologies, along with advanced CAD work in a primarily hands-on environment.

Digital Manufacturing focuses on the advancement of machines and technology currently being implemented on manufacturing floors. Technology used in our lab includes:

  • 7-axis CNC robotic carver
  • Cobots for pick and place/assembly processes
  • Vision inspection systems
  • PLCs and automated control systems

In addition to these machines, Century College’s Digital Fabrication Lab (Fab Lab) is also a primary creative/making center for ADM students, and allows student use of laser cutters, CNC routers and circuit board mills.
