The drafting and design technology program will produce qualified design-draftspersons who, in support of architects and designers, civil and MEP engineers, contractors and industrial designers, in diverse technical fields will be able to communicate design information by conventional pencil and sketch drafting, computer aided drafting, and oral communication.
The manufacturing technology program prepares graduates for entry-level positions in machining, grinding, welding, CNC (computer numerical control) programming/machining, industrial design, fixturing and quality assurance/control positions. Students will have a broad exposure to common manufacturing industry methods, procedures and safety.
The engineering technology program is intended to prepare students for entry-level positions as support personnel with myriad technological skills for the broad area of engineering & technology.
The Certificate in Computer Aided Drafting is designed to produce qualified CAD-draftspersons in diverse technical fields. Students will be able to communicate design information beginning from an early concept pencil sketch to an industry standard digital design using CAD, visualization, and animation software. The program will also inspire characteristics of professionalism designed to help students achieve their career goals.
The COA.CNC.PROG certificate prepares graduates for entry-level positions in CNC machining, programming, machine operator, machine set-up, quality control/inspection, safety practices, print reading and associated machine shop tasks.
The COA.MACH.TOOL certificate prepares graduates for entry-level positions in manual machining, grinding, machine set-up, quality control/inspection, print reading, safety practices and associated machine shop tasks.
The Certificate of Achievement in Manufacturing Design prepares graduates for entry-level positions using Pro/Engineer software at an engineering or architectural firm. Students can also earn a nationally recognized certification.
The Certificate of Achievement in Welding is designed for students wishing to gain the working knowledge and skills related to basic welding for either professional or personal gain. This certificate can be taken alone or be used to complement a degree in Manufacturing Technology. Students in the program take a two semester sequence in welding plus a drafting course and a course in Materials Processing & Fabrication.
