Description to come.
The program consists of specialized classroom instruction, along with projects and lab experiences, that focus on the machining of metals and plastics. Students learn how to set up and operate the following types of machines: contour saw, drill press, lathe, milling machine grinder, and CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) machines. Instruction also includes the use of precision measuring instruments, such as, layout and inspection tools, micrometer, and gauges. Classroom and practical experiences teach students: CNC programming, use of CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing) processes, and to set up and perform advanced level machining operations. Related trade math and blueprint reading are taught as a part of the program and are used extensively in laboratory activities. CAD/CAM processes and CNC machining activities play an increasingly important role in the industry. A major focus of the program is the development of the knowledge and skills that meet the requirements of industry for machinists trained to perform these tasks as an integral part of the engineering and manufacturing process. The machinery and materials used are those commonly found in the machine tool industry. Instruction is provided in safe practices, which are critical in this industry, and the use of tools, equipment, materials and processes found in the machining industry.
Welding Technology is a technical certificate program that offers students the opportunity to become skilled welders and welder helpers in the marine, construction and various other industries. Instruction is provided in the basics of welding, with special emphasis on theory and hands-on training. By advancing through a series of competencies, a student will learn to use gas and/or electric cutting and joining metals. Blueprint reading and the preparation of layouts are an important part of this program.
