This program is designed to help the student build valuable skills for one of today’s most appealing and dependable trades. The program is designed to teach the combination of CAD, CAD/CAM, and machining. Training focuses on working with manual and computer numerical control (CNC) machines making tools, dies, molds, and other objects using high-tech milling and lathe equipment. Students will also gain experience with laser engravers, CNC plasma machines, die presses, surface grinders, 3d printers, and EDM machines. These skills will be enhanced by using computer-aided drafting (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software such as Amsterdam, Solid works, and CorelDraw. Students can earn a technical certificate after one year. Students can then continue with the advanced classes and earn an associate’s degree in applied science.
