Program Learning Outcomes

The purpose of this program is to prepare students for the challenging technicalities of CNC Manufacturing. This program focuses heavily on CNC operation, especially CNC-specific safety procedures, CAD, CAM, and g-code.

Manufacturing Technology has long been a staple in any modern economy. Since the 1960s, CNC Manufacturing has been increasing rapidly. Everything around you, from your car to your cell phone, medical equipment to construction tools, has been designed in CAM software, had each piece prototyped and finally mass produced on CNC machines. 

CNC Technology is better for producing many parts from the same print than manual manufacturing. Almost every modern field has parts that require incredibly small and precise measurements. In these fields measuring, designing, and manufacturing parts must be done with extreme accuracy, sometimes down to 0.1 microns. A human hair is 700x as thick as 0.1 micron. 

Students who complete this program will be able to:
PLO 1 - Operate safely in a manufacturing environment using industrial safety standards and an appreciation for the importance of personal health and safety
PLO 2 - Read prints, use precision measuring tools, and apply mathematical skills to accomplish shop tasks
PLO 3 - Safely and efficiently set up and operate all standard machine tools employed by the modern machine shop
PLO 4 - Perform G-Code programming, set up and operation of CNC equipment using familiarity with manual machinery, CAD, CAM and verification software
PLO 5 - Use the internet to access information pertaining to shop techniques and tool use
