Associate in Applied Science (AAS)

Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) Machining

The Associate in Applied Science in Advanced Manufacturing with a concentration in Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machining is designed to prepare individuals for employment in the industry as a CNC machinist. CNC Machinists produce precision metal parts, using machine tools such as lathes, drill presses, and milling machines. Also, machinists and tool programmers set up and operate a wide variety of machine tools, using their knowledge of the working properties of metals. They plan and carry out the operations needed to make machined products that meet precise specifications. Students in the Advanced Machining program manufacture, assemble, and repair metal parts, subassemblies, and complete machines. Increasingly machines used to produce metal parts are computer numerically controlled (CNC) with 3, 4 and 5 axis programming. Students in this program are required to participate in 3rd party credentialing such as NIMS and NOCTI activities prior to graduation. This concentration area has a series of stackable short term certificates focused on specific skill sets an individual can earn as they progress toward an Associate degree or take in order to develop their skills in a particular area of demand.
