Computer Numerical Control
This two-quarter program is designed for students who have experience in machine
operation, feeds and speeds, and an understanding of basic shop math.
Instruction is both theoretical and practical, and includes manual and computer
programming using the latest CNC/CAM software. This program is taught in
a machine shop facility equipped with industrial size 3- and 4-axis vertical
and horizontal milling machines and 3-axis turning center with conversational
control and live tooling.
In this program, students are introduced to micro-computer hardware, the Windows
operating system, the basics of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines, and
programming CNC machines using MasterCAM software.
Students also learn information literacy, hazardous material
processes, and manufacturing trends.
