CNC Machining Technology ATC
This program provides training that prepares students to set up and operate both manual and CNC machining equipment, handle inspection devices, analyze production problems, and move into supervision of machine shops. Students obtain a strong background in manual machining, engineering graphics, computer aided machining (CAD/CAM/CNC), quality control, material handling and leadership skills. The program provides a balance between practical training in manufacturing processes and technical education in analysis, planning, and control with supporting emphasis in communications, mathematics, science, and business.
To prepare for entry into the program courses in metal or wood shop, mechanical drawing, English, mathematics, physics, and computers are strongly recommended. Activity in clubs or organizations which emphasize leadership skills is also recommended. There is an opportunity for students to work in industry for a specified time and receive college credit, or to convert work and life experience into college credit for this program. Those interested in such an opportunity are encouraged to contact their advisor for further details at the time of registration.
Entrance requirements for the CNC Machining Technology program include:
- Compass scores of 68 or higher in English, 73 or higher in Reading, and ALEKS score of 30 or higher in Math (Algebra), or qualify for MTHPT 137, ENGL-101, and COMM-101.
Enrollment priority will be given to students on the basis of student’s advising date.
