Certificate Of Achievement
The CAD-CAM Certificate of Achievement is designed to provide the academic, technical and hands on experience to prepare students for entry into the workforce in engineering drawing and drafting, materials testing, and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine programming or operation. In addition, students can seek further on the job-training in mechanical engineering technology industry related jobs.
This program will allow students to gain exposure to the design, development, testing, and manufacture of industrial machinery, consumer products, and other equipment.
Students will make drawings and layouts, generate CNC codes from 3D simulation, operate a CNC machine, record and analyze data, make calculations and estimates, and report their findings.
The CAD-CAM Certificate of Achievement contributes to further academic growth beyond the Certificate of Achievement level by providing 12 credits of transfer toward an AAS degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology.
Upon successful completion of all program requirements, graduates will be able to:
- Employ critical thinking and problem solving skills to solve technical problems in general and to make drawings according to standards;
- Demonstrate knowledge of the technical terms and principles of mechanical engineering technology and design;
- Express and interpret both technical and non-technical concepts orally and in written and electronic formats;
- Demonstrate information literacy through familiarity and the effective use of technical information resources in the field of mechanical engineering technology and design.
After Union County College
Graduates can enter the workforce in engineering drawing, drafting materials testing, or Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine programming or operation. Graduates can also seek further academic growth by transferring their 12 credits from this Certificate of Achievement toward an A.A.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology.
