Machine Tool Technology, A.A.S.
Effective: Spring, 2016
The Associate in Applied Science degree in Machine Tool Technology emphasizes the advanced manufacturing technologies. Students are prepared to work in precision tooling, machining, and manufacturing. Graduates could qualify for positions as machine tool operators; machinists; Computerized Numerically Controlled (CNC) machinists and programmers; Electrical Discharge Machine (EDM) operator/programmers; computer-aided drafting/design and computer-aided machining/manufacturing (CAD-CAM) programmers, toolmakers, mold makers and inspectors.
Upon successful completion of this program, students should be able to:
- Demonstrate knowledge of the processes and operations of conventional/manual machines; Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) and Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) tools and equipment.
- Demonstrate competency in programming and operating Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) systems, machines and tool.
- Communicate advanced technological concepts and practices in oral, written, and graphical formats.
- Accurately perform conversions, computations and calculations needed for parts production.
- Demonstrate knowledge of project management processes related to machining operations.
- Demonstrate knowledge in understanding of machine shop safety as well as industry safety principles and practices.
