The Manufacturing Machining Technician Associate of Applied Science prepares students to apply basic utilization skills for the identification and resolution of production problems in the manufacture of products. The program includes instruction in machine operations, production line operations, utilization improvements, physical controls, automation, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), manufacturing planning, quality control, and informational infrastructure.
The degree benefits students who are new to design and machining technology and those who are currently in the field but looking to expand skills and increase career opportunities. Students who have a non-technology career in another field may find this degree optimum for cross training into the CAD/CAM and manufacturing technology discipline.
Program Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to:
- Use fixture design in production environment.
- Analyze machine operation for optimization opportunities.
- Develop part-holding options for computer numerical control lathe and mill.
- Model effective and appropriate communication with manufacturing professionals and clients.
