The Computer-Integrated Machining Technology curriculum prepares students with the analytical, creative, and innovative skills necessary to take a production idea from an initial concept through design, development, and production, resulting in a finished product.
Coursework may include manual machining, computer applications, engineering design, computer-aided drafting (CAD), computer-aided machining (CAM), blueprint interpretation, advanced computerized numeric control (CNC) equipment, basic and advanced machining operations, precision measurement, and high speed multi-axis machining.
Graduates should qualify for employment as machining technicians in high-tech manufacturing, rapid-prototyping and rapid-manufacturing industries, specialty machine shops, fabrication industries, and high-tech or emerging industries such as aerospace, aviation, medical, and renewable energy, and to sit for machining certification examinations.
Individuals interested in pursuing the field need to take high school or vocational school math courses, including geometry, algebra II, advanced functions and modeling, or higher. Blueprint reading, computer programming, metalworking, and drafting are also critical to being successful.
Please see the catalog for more information about the degree, diploma, and certificate options for this curriculum.
