Additional information available on the Machining Technology Department website.

This Intermediate Manufacturing Machining certificate provides students with entry level machining and technology skills. Students perform basic lathe operations and learn about 2-axis machining, 3-axis machining wire frame and surface modeling, lathe programming, DNC systems, and advanced applications of 3D parametric software. This certificate is one of four certificates that build on each other across three semesters.

** Note: The following certificates build on one another. After three semesters a student would achieve the four certificates below. There is also the opportunity to receive two more certifications should the student pass the exams: CSWA: Certification SolidWorks Associate National Certification and a NIMS Level One Certification.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the Intermediate Manufacturing Machining certificate program, students should be able to:

  • Perform basic lathe operations (e.g., shaping, drilling, sanding, knurling, turning, cutting, and deformation)
  • Operate a vertical milling machine (e.g., reaming, drilling, boring) within required tolerances
  • Create two-dimensional objects using computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software and processes for mills and machining tool paths
  • Produce industrial 2D working drawings and 3D models using SolidWorks Software based on industry standards to create advanced models, parts, assemblies, and related documents (e.g., bill of materials, parts lists)

Total Credit Hours: 15
