Basic Machining Processes
This course will cover fundamental manufacturing processes. The student will be exposed to manual machine operator skills. Particular course emphasis will be on machines, tools and measurements to produce an end product. This is a hands-on class with two-thirds of the time in the manufacturing lab.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Operate machinery safely.
- Interpret blueprints, including common drafting symbols.
- Use calculator to perform mathematical operations.
- Measure using direct-reading instruments.
