This study is aimed at exploring and analyzing the manufacturing technology and mechanizing technology programs through the information and literature on the websites of community colleges in America from 2014 to 2015. In this study, we analyzed the methods of program design, rules, teaching programs, certificates and the future development of those colleges that offer the manufacturing technology and mechanizing technology programs. This study also incorporated Central Community College of Nebraska as an example because its program is flexible and diverse for learners in Central Community College of Nebraska and it is much better and more complete than those in other states, and thus it could be represented as a module. In Central Community College of Nebraska, the features of the program include the following: courses based on various fields; earning credits based on degrees; and meeting the needs of the industry. The students are required to take obligatory courses as well as general core courses, and the program sets definite graduation conditions according to the rules of the Associate in Applied Science, Diplomas or Certificates. It is helpful for one's career as well as one's technical education. Our conclusion was generalized from the curriculum planning and design of Community Colleges in America. The conclusion of this study was that the program of Community Colleges in America seemed to be the model of the cultivation human resources and technical education. The flexible and diverse program that Community Colleges in America offer prepare the students for advanced studies and/or careers in a club-saving manner. The program of Community Colleges in America can be applied in Taiwan in order to study and explore our technical education.
