Manufacturing CTE Cluster

Our Career and Technical Education (CTE) Pathways in the Manufacturing CTE Cluster lead to a credential for employment (certificate, diploma, or degree).

Prepare for a career in planning, managing, and performing the processing of materials into intermediate or final products, and related professional and technical support activities, such as production planning and control, maintenance, and manufacturing/process engineering.

Available Pathways

Classes are offered at our college campuses in Monroe and Polkton and online. Some classes may be offered at your local high school. Classes are organized into pathways and align with the K-12 curriculum and Career and College Ready Standards adopted by the State Board of Education.
