Applied Technology

Computerized Numerical Control Technology
Certificate program (Typically finished in two semesters)

In this CNC Certificate Program students will learn the programming, set-up and operation of machine tools, including loading raw stock, start-up procedures, de-bugging of programs, and inspection of parts. Instruction emphasizes hands-on skills as well as related information in the use of computerized numerical control (CNC) technology to program machine tools for drilling, milling, and turning operations. A graduate of this program can be employed as a class C machinist, entry-level tool programmer, CNC Operator, or a mechanical engineering technician.

This program provides the student the opportunity:

  • To learn machining techniques which are among today's high technological computer based manufacturing environments.

The graduate of this program is able to:

  • Set-up and program a Computer Numeric Machine and evaluate tool paths for safety and efficiency.
  • Use Computer Aided Manufacturing software to create a machine-readable program.
  • Plan and create a tool path that includes holding methods and cut sequences.
