Applied Sciences and Technologies
Certificates are also available in this curriculum.
Certificates are available in the following:
- Computer Numerical Control (CNC)
- Motorsports Machining
The Computer-Intergrated Machining curriculum prepares students with the analytical, creative and innovative skills necessary to take a production idea from initial concept through design, development and production, resulting in a finished product.
Graduates will be able to:
- Understand and evaluate a basic blueprint using specified NIMS tolerances and industry standards
- Identify work orders and write out or modify as needed correctly, calculate information needed to machine parts to correct specs
- Locate on computer the part location information and enter parts in the CNC machine and complete a CNC machine part
- Construct, input milling properties, and simulate cutting operation of 3-d surface and solid modeling features by computer-assisted methods
- Evaluate machining process during cutting operation and adjust initial variable settings to achieve maximum results
- Create a multiple part mechanism which requires both CNC milling and turning to manufacture a capstone
