The certificate program in Advanced Manufacturing includes coursework to help prepare students for CAD and CAM use in industry. Students who complete this program will have the necessary skill set to be employed by industry and in a variety of positions. Current engineers/engineering students will find the program helpful for advanced skill building. Technicians will use this program to strengthen their skill set and technical communications skills.
The program meets the need of industry for multi skilled individuals who serve as technicians or engineers in either physical part manufacturing or computational design. Knowledge of the CAD and CAM process allows a technician physically create the part from a computer based solid model or an engineer to develop a part from initial design to final physical object.
Upon successfully completing the program, graduates will be able to design parts, drawings, and assemblies for the intent of manufacturing and assembly
Students desiring to obtain a Certificate of Achievement in Computer Aided Drafting and Manufacturing need to complete 18 units. After completing AM 100 and 105, students can complete certificates with emphasis in either of the three following specializations CATIA, SolidWorks or CAM, or more if the complete the necessary elective courses.
