Hamilton & Sumiton Campuses
Manufacturing Engineering Technicians maintain, adjust, calibrate, and repair a wide variety of electronic, electromechanical, and hydraulic equipment used in manufacturing environments. Technicians use a wide variety of tools to conduct their work, including multi-meters, specialized software, and computers designed to communicate with specific pieces of hardware. If a machine is not functioning to its potential, the technician may have to adjust the mechanical or hydraulic components, or adjust the software to bring the equipment back into calibration.
