Computer Integrated Machining

Associate of Applied Science

Advising Code: A 50 21 0


Detail

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.
