Computer-Integrated Machining

Contact(s): Ryan Love

The Computer-Integrated Machining curriculum prepares students with the analytical, creative and innovative skills necessary to take a production idea from an initial concept through design, development, and production, resulting in a finished product.

Coursework may include manual machining, computer applications, computer-aided machining (CAM), blueprint interpretation, advanced computerized numeric control (CNC) equipment, basic and advanced machining operations, and precision.

Graduates should qualify for employment as machining technicians in high-tech manufacturing, rapid prototyping and rapid-manufacturing industries, specialty machine shops, fabrication industries, and high-tech or emerging industries such as aerospace, aviation, medical, and renewable energy, and to sit for machining certification examinations.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • The student will be able to interpret blueprints
  • The student will be able to create a working assembly of manufactured parts
  • The student will be able to apply general principles of mathematics and programming to CNC machine programming and CNC graphics programming
  • The student will be able to setup and operate a CNC machine
