Advanced Manufacturing

Three students using machinery in Advanced Manufacturing

Advanced manufacturing focuses on learning and setting up the operation of various manual machines. Students learn to build different machine parts using modern manufacturing processes.

The classroom is designed as a factory setting – ranging from creating a drawing to ordering parts, manufacturing, inspection, assembling and marketing.

Students will gain knowledge in understanding process engineering, basic tool design and quality control.

Many aspects are formatted under ISO 9001 (a blueprint format used in airspace engineering). Students use CNC machines, vertical milling machine, manual lathes, cutter grinders, OD grinding, broaching and optical comparators.

Students will graduate and earn skills in the areas of entry-level machinist, inspection and working in a manufacturing environment.
