The Computer Integrated Machining (CIM) curriculum prepares students with the analytical, creative and innovative skills necessary to take a production idea from an initial concept through design, development and production, resulting in a finished product.

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.

Graduates should qualify for employment as machining technicians in high-tech manufacturing, rapid-prototyping and rapid-manufacturing industries, specialty machine shops, fabrication industries, and hightech or emerging industries such as aerospace, aviation, medical, and renewable energy, and to sit for machining certification examinations.

Program Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of the Computer Integrated Machining program, the graduate should be able to:

  • Write CNC code for machined parts
  • Complete CNC machine setups
  • Complete projects using milling machines, bench grinders, power saws, lathes, drill press, and surface grinders
  • Complete drawings to develop CAD/CAM and CNC programs
  • Produce rapid prototyping models
  • Use industry standards to determine the quality of manufactured parts
