Students in the Bachelor of Science in Technology in Wood Product Manufacturing receive a blend of manufacturing theory and a hands-on approach to cultivate graduates with a large base of skill and knowledge of the industry.  Average class sizes range from 15 to 25 students, allowing for direct instruction from our professors. Students in the program are also able to travel and explore the country through facility tours, trade shows, and paid internships every year.  

Looking for a 2-yr program?
The 2-Year Associate of Applied Science degree in Wood Product Manufacturing provides graduates with technical information and skills for working in these industries.

Already have a 2-yr degree?
Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) offers students who have graduated from an accredited two-year associate degree technical program the opportunity to extend their education and training.  Like two-year technical programs, this bachelor's degree gives students complete, hands-on training for a real-world job.  

The Society of Architectural Woodworkers (SAW) Club is a student led organization that gives its members the opportunity to work on projects and processes similar to what they might find after graduation.  SAW Club applies information students learn in class to actual jobs and projects for profit.  The club then uses this capital for facility upgrades, seminar registration, and fun events like spring break trips and game nights.

Every year, students in the WPM program complete internships all over the country, working alongside current professionals in the industry.  Internships allow students to apply their classroom knowledge to a professional setting, a concept that is hard to find in most college majors.  The WPM program has a near 100% placement rate, and many of our graduates have several job offers before graduation.  A list of recruiting companies and potential careers are below:
