Advanced Manufacturing

Did you know that nearly everything you touch has been manufactured in some way, shape, or form? Our advanced manufacturing program allows students to be creative while also requiring them to be detailed oriented. It teaches students all aspects of machining applications in manufacturing. Students will learn the fundamental principles and practices of cutting, drilling, and grinding using modern machine tools, hand tools (manual drills and lathes), and precision measuring instruments.

Students apply their knowledge of product characteristics, perform necessary calculations, and use precision measuring instruments and layout equipment to mill products to print dimensions. Students will also use computer numerical control (CNC) programming to mill products comprised of different types of materials.
