Computer-Integrated Machining Technology A.A.S.

A50210

The Computer-Integrated Machining 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. Students should consult their advisor for information about course scheduling.

Upon successful completion of this program, the student should be able to:

  • Create, manage, organize, and communicate information through print and electronic media (GE III.5)
  • Demonstrate activities and skills that promote success in the workplace (GE V.5)
  • Demonstrate competence in precision measurement and layout
  • Demonstrate competence in drilling and sawing
  • Demonstrate competence in turning, milling, and precision grinding
