What is the program about?

This short term certificate (STC) is designed to enhance the machining skills of students who have taken machining courses in high school or to allow individuals with little or no experience in machining to quickly obtain a certificate which may in turn qualify them for an entry level position in a machining company. Course work is focused on introductory levels of manual machining and basic operation of CNC machines. This STC is the first half of the Computer Numerical Control Technology short term certificate and will provide students with a milestone of completion and the ability to continue their education up to and including a two year Associate of Applied Science degree in CNC operations.

Program Outcomes

  • Perform general set-up, tool changes, offsets, and operation of CNC mills.
  • Perform basic operation of manual mills, lathes and grinders.
  • Effectively practice safety procedures on manual and CNC equipment.

Career Opportunities

Students who complete this certificate will become eligible for employment at an introductory level in the high tech field of machining. All courses contained within this certificate may be applied towards a degree in CNC operation; a high demand, high paying field.
