Computer Integrated Manufacturing Engineering Technology: Precision Machining Option

The Precision Machining Option of the Computer Integrated Manufacturing Engineering Technology Program (PMT) trains individuals to become machinists. The program is an engineering technology program that concentrates on the skills and concepts needed by today’s machine shops. Successful graduates should be ready to take on careers which include titles such as machinist (conventional and computer numerically controlled), tool and die maker, and mold maker. The curriculum includes computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing software packages that support the industry. The program follows the NIMs Level One Machinist skills and students should be able to take and pass the NIMs requirements to become a NIMs Level one machinist by graduation.   Apply & Register Program Details

Program Goals

  • To equip students with the ability to analyze and solve manufacturing and fabrication problems.
  • To provide students with a General Education foundation.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to:

  1. Operate conventional machine shop equipment including mills, lathes, drill presses, grinding equipment, and various other supporting tools.
  2. Create size specific mechanical parts in specified tolerances.
  3. Understand how to “read” part prints, which is the schematic of the mechanical world.
  4. Be proficient in the utilization of Computer Numerical Controlled equipment. This includes the operation of and the setup of Computer Numerical Controlled mills and lathes.
  5. Author and troubleshoot Computer Numerical Control programs.
  6. Create and manipulate Computer Aided Drafting generated print files and solid models.

Employment Opportunities

Successful graduates should be ready to take on careers which include titles such as machinist (conventional and computer numerically controlled), tool and die maker, mold maker, SolidWorks drafts person, and Mastercam operator.
