The Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) major offers both theoretical and hands-on training related to lathes, vertical mills, drill press, hand tools, Computer Numeric Control (CNC) lathes and mills, and Computer-aided Machining (CAM). A student enrolling in the program should have the desire and ability to work with their hands, possess a high degree of mechanical aptitude and enjoy working in a shop environment.
Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to:
Technological advances and continued expansion of the advanced manufacturing industry have increased the demands for well-trained entry-level technicians locally, state-wide and nationally. Individuals with knowledge of CNC lathes and mills and CAM are especially in demand. For students interested in a Certificate of Achievement, an Advanced Manufacturing certificate is available.
Individuals who complete the AMT program should be able to find employment as an entry-level machinists, CNC technician, or machine operator. Graduates can find employment in a variety of areas, including machine shops, manufacturing industries, industrial machinery and equipment, measuring and controlling devices, and beverage product manufacturers.
- Demonstrate safe operation of hand tools, power tools and specialized machine shop tools and equipment;
- Demonstrate the set up and operation of manual lathes and mills;
- Interpret CNC (Computer Numeric Control) programming language;
- Accurately analyze and interpret blueprints and create part(s) to specifications;
- Interpret blueprints and GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing) symbols in order to verify dimensions of a machine part; and
- Describe applications of design, manufacturing, and fabrication applicable to non-ferrous metals.
