Mission

The mission of the Certificate in Technical Studies is two-fold. It prepares students for entry level jobs in areas of general manufacturing, and it prepares students with the skill of operating Computerized Numerical Controlled (CNC) equipment in the manufacturing environment. The program involves two Technical Competency Areas that may be pursued separately or as combined to create a Certificate of Technical Studies.

Program Description

The Certificate of Technical Studies in CNC Manufacturing involves two distinct components: (1) Technical Competency Area (TCA) in Certification for Manufacturing (C4M), (2) Certificate of Technical Studies (CTS) Computer Numerical Controlled Machining (CNC) Operator. The (C4M) TCA produces skilled employees for manufacturing industries. Skills taught have been derived from typical business requirements for existing manufacturing employees and those entering the workforce. The CNC Manufacturing CTS prepares individuals to shape metal parts on Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machines programmed as lathes and milling machines.

In this program, there are a variety exit points that you may choose to take. They are:

 Certificate of Technical Studies (CTS) CNC Manufacturing
 Certificate of Technical Studies (CTS) CNC Operator
 Technical Competency Area (TCA): Certification for Manufacturing (C4M)

Learning Outcomes

Graduates of this program will be able to:
Demonstrate an understanding of basic manufacturing organizational principles.
Communicate effectively in various settings and successfully work with team members to solve problems.
