• Machinist


  • Limited Entry, Career Pathway Certificate of Completion

    Catalog Year 2017-2018

    The curriculum described below is designed to serve non-native English speakers and is offered in a restricted-entry, closed-cohort format. This course of education provides students with knowledge, skills and abilities for the field of machine tool technology. Students participating in the program spend time in study and operation of industrial equipment and tools used by machinists. This includes instruction and practice in the setup and operation of manual and CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) lathes and milling machines. The program is designed to offer an introduction to metalworking occupations. Students are prepared for machining and CNC operator positions.

    Program Outcomes

    At the completion of this program, students 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 workpieces
    • Demonstrate correct application and use of precision measuring equipment commonly found in a manufacturing setting
    • Plan and produce work pieces on a manual drill press to required blueprint specifications using common industry methods
    • Plan and produce work pieces on a manual engine lathe to required blueprint specifications using common industry methods
    • Plan and produce work pieces on a manual milling machine to required blueprint specifications using common industry methods
    • Demonstrate, explain and/or apply CNC program code and machine tools and software to produce work pieces to required blueprint specifications

    Students are required to take IMTL020 in preparation for this program. However, it may be taken concurrently with the first quarter classes.
