Integrated Metals: Machine Tool Technology
Integrated Metals- Machine Tool Technology Degree
The purpose of the two-year Machine Tool Technology curriculum is to prepare students for entry into machining occupations. Students participating in the program will spend considerable time in study and actual operation of industrial equipment and tools used by machinists. This includes emphasis on the setup and operation of a CNC (computer numerical controlled) lathes and milling machines. Students will also be introduced to CAD/CAM (computer assisted design/computer assisted manufacturing) software and its applications. The program is designed to offer a broad background of experiences in the metalworking occupations. Students are expected to have a set of machinist tools. They are expected to maintain a minimum grade level of C on core curriculum classes to progress in the program.
Integrated Metals Machine Tool Operator Certificate
The Machine Tool Operator Certificate is an option in the Integrated Metals programs that will provide the student with the basic skill sets necessary for basic entry level positions in a manufacturing company. The program is designed to provide the basic introduction to metal removal using manual machining processes such as milling, turning (lathe), drill press, as well as surface and cylindrical grinding. There is also instruction in basic measurement and blueprint reading. The student will have a basic introduction to CNC machining. Students are expected to have a set of machinist tools. They are expected to maintain a minimum grade level of C on core curriculum classes to progress in the program.
