Machining/Computer Integrated Manufacturing
Students work towards earning NIMS industry-based certifications by learning key skills in computer programming (coding), computer aided-design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), CNC machining, robotics, and integrating robotic systems such as Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and robotic arms used in manufacturing systems.
Students will design and build real-world products from 3D photo carvings to gearboxes for robots. Students work with state of the art machines including industrial standard HAAS CNC mills and 3D printers to turn raw materials into finished products. The products are then assembled into a working robot and programmed to perform various tasks. Programming languages may include Java, C++, Labview, and RobotC. Robotic platforms may include: EV3, Textrix, Arduino, and FRC.
This course is ideal for students interested in CNC Machining, Computer Programming, Robotics, CAD/CAM Drafting & Design, or Engineering.
We are working to get Computer Integrated Manufacturing II added in the future.
Opportunities Upon Completion
Upon successful completion, students may choose to enter the workforce as an entry-level machinist. Machinist can earn $13-$15/hour in local machine shops.
Students may also pursue post-secondary education in a range of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics fields for higher paying opportunities.
