    650 Introduction to Trades (INT ADV MFTG) DOE# 4796

    Introduction to Trades focuses on manufacturing systems with an introduction to advanced manufacturing and logistics and their relationship to society, individuals, and the environment. Students apply the skills and knowledge of using modern manufacturing processes to obtain resources and change them into industrial materials, industrial products and consumer products. Students investigate the properties of engineered materials. Students study six major types of material processes: casting and molding; forming; separating; conditioning; finishing; and assembling. After gaining a working knowledge of these materials, students are introduced to advanced manufacturing, logistics, and business principles that are utilized in today’s advanced manufacturing industry. Students gain a basic understanding of tooling, electrical skills, operation skills, inventory principles, MSDS’s, chart and graph reading and MSSC concepts. There is also an emphasis placed on the flow process principles, material movement, safety, and related business operations. Students have the opportunity to develop the characteristics employers seek as well as skills that will help them in future endeavors.

    *Students will sign up for all three: Principles of Precision Machining, Machining Fundamentals, and Precision Machining in order to fulfill Precision Machining 1. 

     

    7109 Principles of Precision Machining (PRIN PREC MACH)DOE# 7109

    Principles of Precision Machining will instruct students in shop safety, industrial terminology, tools and machine tooling, measurement, and layout. Includes laboratory exercises to begin project completion of turning, milling, and grinding applications. This course incorporates certification assessment for the National Institute of Metalworking Skills Measurement, Materials and Safety, Job Planning, Benchwork, and Layout Certification. Applies mathematics in solving engineering and design related problems in the areas of die design, fabrication, assembly, special machinery, die casting and molds. Emphasizes geometric dimensioning and applying tolerances.  

     

    7105CC Machining Fundamentals (MACH FUN) DOE# 7105

    Machining Fundamentals instructs students in shop safety, industrial terminology, and provides laboratory experience toward project completion on the conventional lathe, vertical and/or horizontal milling machine, and abrasive processing machines, including super abrasive technology processes. This course incorporates certification assessment for the National Institute of Metalworking Skills Manual Milling Certification.  

    • Required Prerequisites: Principles of Precision Machining  
    • Qualifies as a quantitative reasoning course 

     

    7107 Precision Machining (PREC MACH) DOE# 7107

    Precision Machining introduces and instructs students in all aspects of Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machine operation and setup. The student will set up and operate CNC mills and lathes utilizing set-up, production, in-process inspection, and preventive maintenance methods similar to what the student may experience in the present day work environment. This course prepares students to take the NIMS Level I CNC operations certification.  

    • Required Prerequisites: Principles of Precision Machining; and Machining Fundamentals  
    • Qualifies as a quantitative reasoning course

     

    PRECISION MACHINING II (PCSN MACH II) DOE# 5784

    Precision Machining II is a more in-depth study of skills learned in Precision Machining I, with a stronger focus in CNC setup/operation/programming. Classroom activities will concentrate on precision set-up and inspection work as well as machine shop calculations. Students will develop skills in advanced machining and measuring parts involving tighter tolerances and more complex geometry. A continued focus on safety will also be included. 

    • Required Prerequisites: Precision Machining I 



    WELDING TECHNOLOGY 

    *Students will sign up for all three: Principles of Welding Technology, Shielded Metal Arc Welding, and Gas Welding Processes in order to fulfill Welding Technology 1. 

     

    7110 Principles of Welding Technology (PRIN WEL TCH) DOE# 7110

    Principles of Welding Technology includes classroom and laboratory experiences that develop a variety of skills in oxy-fuel cutting and basic welding. This course is designed for individuals who intend to make a career as a Welder, Technician, Designer, Researcher, or Engineer. Emphasis is placed on safety at all times. OSHA standards and guidelines endorsed by the American Welding Society (AWS) are used. Instructional activities emphasize properties of metals, safety issues, blueprint reading, electrical principles, welding symbols, and mechanical drawing through projects and exercises that teach students how to weld and be prepared for postsecondary and career success.  



    7111 Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SHLD MAW) DOE# 7111

    This course involves the theory and application of the Shielded Metal Arc Welding process. Process theory will include basic electricity, power sources, electrode selection, and all aspects pertaining to equipment operation and maintenance. Laboratory welds will be performed in basic weld joints with a variety of electrodes in the flat, horizontal and vertical positions. Emphasis will be placed on developing the basic skills necessary to comply with AWS industry standards.  

    • Required Prerequisites: Principles of Welding Technology

     

    7101CC Gas Welding Processes (GAS WEL PRC) DOE# 7101

    A course designed to cover the operation of Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG) equipment. This will include all settings, adjustments and maintenance needed to weld with a wire feed system. Instruction on both short-arc and spray-arc transfer methods will be covered. Tee, lap, and open groove joints will be done in all positions with solid, fluxcore, and aluminum wire. Test plates will be made for progress evaluation. Schools will have the option to introduce students to both MIG and TIG welding rather than focusing solely on MIG welding.  

    • Required Prerequisites: Principles of Welding Technology 
    • Recommended Prerequisites: none  



    6572 WELDING TECHNOLOGY II (WELD TECH II) DOE# 5778

    Welding Technology II builds on the skills covered in Welding Technology I. Emphasis is placed on safety at all times. OSHA standards and guidelines endorsed by the American Welding Society (AWS) are used. Instructional activities emphasize properties of metals, safety issues, blueprint reading, electrical principles, welding symbols, and mechanical drawing through projects and exercises that teach students how to weld and be prepared for college and career success.
