Additional information available on the Machining Technology Department website.

This Basic Manufacturing Machining certificate provides students with entry level machining and technology skills. Students learn about the hazards of a machine shop including safety procedures, use of bench tools, layout tools, power saws, and various hand tools related to the machine shop. Students also learn how to use common measuring instruments relating to state-of-the-art manufacturing environments. 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 Basic Manufacturing Machining certificate program, students should be able to:

  • Maintain a safe work area by demonstrating safety knowledge and proper use of hand tools and machining equipment
  • Read and interpret industry prints, using current drawing standards in dimensioning, symbology, linetypes, lineweights, drawing notes for working drawings, engineering assembly and design related manufacturing drawings
  • Demonstrate basic and advanced measurement processes and skills utilizing common measuring instruments to ensure projects are within given specifications
  • 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)
  • Explain the changes in metallurgical characteristics during heating, cooling, shaping, and forming
