The Advanced Manufacturing Technology Certificate of Achievement offers both theoretical and hands-on training related to lathes, vertical mills, drill press, hand tools, Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machines, 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 certificate level knowledge of CNC machines and CAM are especially in demand. . For students interested in an Associate Degree, an Advanced Manufacturing major is available.
Individuals who complete the Advanced Manufacturing certificate program should be able to find employment as an entry-level machinist, 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;
