CAD/CAM Technology (AAS)

Application Code: 
1337
Degree Received: 
Associate in Applied Science (AAS)
Description: 

The CAD/CAM technology program (computer-aided design/drafting - computer-aided manufacturing) prepares the graduate for a number of opportunities in the engineering and manufacturing-related fields. This program develops skills in the areas of design/drafting (2D CAD and 3D solid modeling) and automation/robotics. Graduates will become proficient with industry-standard software including AutoCAD, Solidworks, and Siemens Nx. Each student will also be exposed to hardware such as coordinate measuring machines (CMM), computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines, and industry grade robotics.

Welding Technology (AOS)

Application Code: 
0666
Degree Received: 
Associate in Occupational Studies (AOS)
Academic Department Info: 
Description: 

The welding technology program is taught according to the standards set by the American Welders Society (AWS) and is AWS-certified.

The program focuses on welding processes performed in all positions on both plate and pipe. Topics include proper safety methods, required math, related skills, layout and fit up, welding codes and standards, welding inspection, testing and drawing/welding symbol interpretation.

Entrance Requirements & Recommendations: 

Recommended: In-depth knowledge of basic math skills

Graduation Requirements: 

A student must successfully complete all courses in the prescribed four-semester program and earn a minimum cumulative index of 2.0, which is equivalent to a "C" average. Students are required to earn a grade of "C" or higher in WELD 1723 welders calculations to be eligible for graduation. (Articulation is available in this area.)

A "C" or higher must be received also for WELD 4013 senior project.
