Manufacturing Tool and Die Certificate

Manufacturing Tool and Die Certificate

NC State’s Manufacturing Technology Certificate program allows students to complete a series of coordinated courses in a shorter period of time than an associate degree. Students in associate degree programs may benefit from adding a certificate to their areas of expertise. A minimum of a 2.00 grade-point average must be obtained for all required courses in order to receive a certificate.

This certificate is eligible for federal financial aid.
