Remanufacturing Pathways


Beginning in the fall of 2019, technical education students at Ozarks Technical Community College can pursue their degrees with an emphasis in remanufacturing. Diesel, automotive and manufacturing students will have the opportunity to enhance their employability with a series of courses developed specifically to prepare students for high-demand jobs in the remanufacturing industry.  The new remanufacturing courses offered by the college will cover the following fundamental remanufacturing principles: core management, inspection and cleaning, salvage and reclamation, repair, and preventative maintenance. They will also include an intensive hands-on training component. Graduates who follow the new remanufacturing pathway will have the emphasis in remanufacturing technology noted on their diplomas.
