Manufacturing Technology (Certificate T0918)

Technology and Health Division
Certificate T0918

The Certificate in Manufacturing Technology is designed to prepare the student for entrance into the manufacturing field in one of the machining occupations such as manual and computer numerical control (CNC) machinists, machinery technicians, or machinist apprentices, computer aided design (CAD) operators, draftsmen, or design engineers, and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) machine programmers. This program provides students with a broad foundation in common manufacturing processes such as injection molding, vacuum forming, sheet metal, casting processes, and laser cutting. Graduates may enter the manufacturing field in areas dealing with production, research and development, tool and die construction, mold making, or computerized manufacturing. Laboratory practice utilizes industrial types of equipment and precision measuring instruments to provide training in the various machining occupations. This certificate covers setup and tooling procedures and part certification upon completion of the metal removing process. It includes instruction on industry-based CAD and CAM methodologies and all types of lathes, mills, grinders, and specialized equipment such as CNC. Supplementary instruction is also provided in mechanical literacy, bench work, layout, inspection process, blueprint reading, metal composition, heat treatment, assembly procedures, jig and fixture design, and construction.
