This 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. The full-time program is completed in 22 1/2 weeks. The three-quarter time program is run in the evening over four semesters. 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 AS Degree in Quality Management Systems, and the BS Degree in Manufacturing Management. Lab sessions are coordinated with the classroom instruction to emphasize experimentation and application.
