More About the Program
We know computer-integrated machining. After you complete our CIM program, you will too.
Coursework may include manual machining, computer applications, engineering design, computer-aided drafting (CAD), computer-aided machining (CAM), blueprint interpretation, advanced computerized numeric control (CNC) equipment, basic and advanced machining operations, precision measurement and high-speed multi-axis machining.
Students will get hands-on experience in a state-of-the-art lab that prepares students to work in modern, high-tech manufacturing facilities as a CNC machinist. Students will learn to use computers in machining, manufacturing, robotics, automation and design.
Graduates should qualify for employment as machining technicians in high-tech manufacturing, rapid-prototyping and rapid-manufacturing industries, specialty machine shops, fabrication industries, and high-tech or emerging industries such as aerospace, aviation, medical, and renewable energy, and to sit for machining certification examinations.
Students enrolling in the program must meet specific emotional, behavioral, physical, and cognitive standards. This information is found in Technical Standards. Students qualifying for special accommodations to these standards must contact the Disability Services Coordinator Laura Walker-Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org or (828) 694-1813 for more information.
