The Integrated Metals CNC/CAD/CAM Certificate is a block of instruction that prepares the student for work in the world of computerized manufacturing. The student is introduced to the application of computerized equipment for engineering computer-aided design (CAD) as well as material processing involving CNC burning, CNC turning and CNC machining centers. This will assist students seeking either entry-level skills or skills upgrade for those already working in the metals manufacturing environment. Students seeking this certificate should contact a program adviser for assistance in planning their educational plans.

Program Outcomes
At the completion of this program, the student should be able to:

  • Demonstrate and/or describe safe work habits and environmental issues associated with modern manufacturing settings
  • Read, interpret and apply blueprints for the production and inspection of manufactured work pieces
  • Demonstrate the correct application and use of precision measuring equipment commonly found in a manufacturing setting
  • Demonstrate, explain and/or apply CNC/CAD/CAM machine tools and software to produce work pieces to required blueprint specifications

Admission is based on date of application and satisfactory completion of placement criteria. Application packets are available on our website at Once you have read the application packet, if you have questions, please call 503-491-7256.

Students are expected to maintain a minimum grade level of "C" on core curriculum classes to progress in the program.
