Program Objective

A strong domestic manufacturing base is vital to the United States economy, as manufactured goods are necessary for trade. The term manufacturing is very broad and includes the use of machine tools required to manufacture finished products. These products can range from an array of plastics to wood and metals. Manufacturers use sophisticated turning and milling machines, grinders, and computerized numerical control (CNC) machines to bring products from concept design to reality. The CNC Machining and Manufacturing Technology program prepares students for entry-level positions as CNC Operators or Set-up Technicians within a Modern Manufacturing facility. Students will learn about the fundamental skills needed for the operation and setup of complex manufacturing machines that utilize turning, milling and multi-axis machining technology. Students will be prepared to qualify for credentials from the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) in the areas of Materials, Measurement and Safety, Job Planning, Bench work and Layout, CNC Milling (setup and programming), CNC Turning (setup and programming), CNC Operator - Turning, and CNC Operator - Milling. Students will be required to complete out-of-class assignments in each course.
