The Mechanical Design & Fabrication degree prepares a student for a career in the computerized machining and fabrication industry. The core courses provide a basis for employment in a variety of manufacturing areas some of which include Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computerized Machining, Production Welding, Metal Fabrication, computerized millwright in wood, plastics and composite materials. Specific software used in this technical program include AutoCAD, PlasmaCAM, MASTERCAM-X Mill, Lathe, Router and SolidWorks. In this high demand industry our objective is to teach students proficiency in the set-up and operation of state of the art CNC machining and turning centers. The students will use a Haas VF-2 CNC Mill, Haas TL-1 CNC Lathe, a CNC plasma cutter and a CNC gantry table router. The Mechanical Design & Fabrication program provides students with unique skills and opportunities for employment in local and regional industries. A student can also acquire practical working experience by participating in our Co-op opportunities with local manufacturers.
