CNC Machining, Metrology, and Manufacturing Technology, Certificate

Enrollment into this certificate is by Departmental Permission only.

This full-time two semester, 37-credit certificate program is designed to introduce and prepare students to enter the manufacturing workforce as skilled CNC operators while understanding the holistic process of design, machining, and quality systems.  Students in this program develop the technical skills and materials knowledge to be an effective member of a manufacturing team.  Participants are introduced to the concepts of production and its relationships to the local and global economy; lean manufacturing principles and essential information on material properties and behaviors.  Additionally, students develop competencies in mathematics, hands-on CNC machining, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing and metrology courses.  Further competencies are gained through design of multi-dimensional parts with computer-aided manufacturing CAM software.  The 37 credits earned for this certificate may also be used toward the fulfillment of the requirements of the AS Degree in CNC Machining or the BS Degree in Manufacturing Management.  Lab sessions are coordinated with the classroom instruction to emphasize experimentation and application.  Successful completion of this certificate program prepares participants to pursue a National Institute for Metal working Skills (NIMS) credential as a CNC operator.
