Students are introduced to all aspects of computer-integrated manufacturing. They will learn about automation, manufacturing processes, computer modeling, computer numerical control (CNC) programming and manufacturing equipment, including mills and lathes. Students will learn how to use the most current technology to create all types of drawings—from paper and pencil sketches to computer-generated blueprints. With these skills, students will be able to take a drawing they completed using computer-aided drafting (CAD) software to advanced manufacturing machines and make the object come to life!
