The Sierra College Advanced Manufacturing Program prepares students for C.N.C. machining and is also ideal for students who need to upgrade prior machine shop training to comply with the current needs of industry.
For the degree, students must fulfill the following major requirements with grades of “C” or better, complete a minimum of 60degree-applicable semester units (12 of which must be completed at Sierra College) with a grade point average of at least 2.0 and complete one of the following three general education patterns:
|Course Number||Course Title||Annual Sections||Annual Enrollment|
|ADVM 62||Introduction to 2D/CAM||6||60|
|ADVM 63||Design Using Fusion 360||4||40|
|ADVM 64||Computer-Aided 2D Design||2||30|
|ADVM 66||CNC Mill 3D Manufacturing||4||40|
|ADVM 67||CNC Three Axis and Multi-Axis Milling||2||20|
|ADVM 68||Advanced Mill 4th and 5th Axis||2||20|
|DES 0001||Technical Drafting||6||70|
|WELD 15||Introductory Welding for Metal Working||7||130|
|Electives (6 additional units from the following list of courses)||DES 0002 DES 0003 DES 0012 WELD 0040 WELD 0050 WELD 0050||1 or more||60 per course|
The Advance Manufacturing Associate of Science (A.S.) Degree is being created in response to industry requests. The Advance Manufacturing Degree is designed to provide students with specific knowledge and skills for career placement and enhancement.
Upon completion of the core components of the curriculum, the student should be able to:
Demonstrate and understanding of common safety policies used in modern machining facilities
Utilize common measuring instruments to ensure projects are within given specifications.
Demonstrate knowledge of print reading and symbology.
Create designs both basic and advanced using CAD/CAM software.
Students must complete core and elective courses as appropriate including completion of general education requirements to achieve this degree.
