Plastics Technology Certificate

The plastics industry is one of the most important parts of engineering. In fact, our lives are filled with plastic parts that make our world easier and more efficient. The pursuit of a Plastics Technology Certificate helps students stay competitive with the latest advancements in the field—whether they are new to the business or a seasoned engineer. You’ll learn how to make cost-savings decisions that will help you become an economical asset to your organization.

At UWM, you’ll receive hands-on training and problem solving skills from instructors who came from the field themselves. They practice what they teach and are able to pass on that firsthand knowledge and experience to their students.

Individual courses may be taken without pursuit of the certificate. In addition, any one of the tolerancing courses may be applied toward this certificate.

Earn the certificate by completing nine or more days of related courses in as little as 18 months (not to exceed three years).

Single courses may be taken without the pursuit of the certificate.
