A50210DF  Total credit hours: 67

Emphasis in Drafting and Design Studies

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.

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

  1. Understand and demonstrate the common principles and practices in advanced manufacturing settings.
  2. Interpret information and blueprints for part manufacturing, job routing, and cost estimation.
  3. Use applied mathematical skills to solve functional problems related to machining.
  4. Use critical thinking to apply machining skills to produce finished parts meeting quality requirements as described in blueprints and reference information about manufacturing materials and machining equipment.
  5. Set up and operate basic machining equipment and computer-numerical controlled machines.
  6. Perform basic preventative maintenance of machines and maintain a safe clean environment while applying the basics of lean manufacturing concepts.

Technical Standards

In addition to DCCC requirements and course objectives, there are professional standards that encompass communication, motor skills, sensory and cognitive ability and professional conduct that are essential for the competent study and practice of this program.  Computer Integrated Machining Technical Standards
