CURRICULAR GUIDE

Supervision, Manufacturing
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0897  (Effective Fall 1999 - Summer 2004)

A supervisor in the manufacturing industry is responsible to management and works
to direct and facilitate production workers. Required skills include a technical
expertise of manufacturing processes and materials, planning and organizational
skills, interpersonal skills, an understanding of how organizations function,
special requirements of the organization such as ISO and QS-9000, and a knowledge
of systems to achieve a quality output. Many supervisors in manufacturing start
their career in an entry-level manufacturing position in which they have acquired
specific technical skills, then are promoted to a supervisory position and have
a need for supervisory skills development. This curriculum provides a foundation
of basic course work in supervision along with choices that allow the student to
customize their program of study to fit the industry in which they work. Not all
courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer
should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment and
advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a mathematics
competency requirement. To fulfill the mathematics competency requirement,
students may need to complete specific coursework in mathematics.  For
information on how to fulfill all general education requirements, see page 22.
