Students in the Machine Tool and Computer Aided Manufacturing program will spend considerable time in study and actual operation of industrial equipment and tools to develop skills used by tool and die making companies and production and manufacturing facilities. This includes emphasis on the set up and operation of computer numerical controlled (CNC) lathes and milling machines. Students will also be introduced to computer controlled measuring machines and computer aided design/computer aided machining (CAD/CAM) software and its applications. A strong project method-driven curriculum assures both theoretical and practical skill development. This program prepares students to enter the workforce fields of CNC, CAM, tool making, mold making, machine tool operating, quality control, industrial sales, and production or manufacturing.
