UPG offers manufacturing management program

upg

Pitt-Greensburg will introduce a manufacturing management program in January.

Working closely with representatives from the precision manufacturing industry in southwestern Pennsylvania, Pitt-Greensburg developed the program to fulfill the industry’s need for educational programs that will enable the industry’s workforce to attain, maintain or upgrade skills to adapt to changing needs.

Using an immersion format that will meet once each month on a Friday and Saturday, students will enter as part of a cohort and take two classes at a time, completing six or seven credits every four months during a 16-month period.

The content is customized to provide courses in management and related areas that are most relevant to current work experiences.

This program is designed for working learners who already have technical training in manufacturing and have been identified by their employers as candidates for future leadership roles. Others who would benefit from this program include military veterans who would like to enhance their skills as well as displaced workers who would like to enter this sector of the workforce.
