Program Description

The Computer-Integrated Machining curriculum prepares students with the analytical, creative and innovative skills necessary to take a production idea from an initial concept through design, development and production, resulting in a finished product.

Coursework may include manual machining, computer applications, engineering design, computer-aided drafting (CAD), computer-aided machining (CAM), blueprint interpretation, advanced computerized numeric control (CNC) equipment, basic and advanced machining operations, precision measurement and high-speed multi-axis machining.

Program Learning Outcomes

Graduates of this program should be able to:

  • Show knowledge of the types of CNC and manual machines used in Industry today.
  • Understand programming and operation of machines following proper startup, shutdown, and safety.
  • Utilize shop math specific to feeds, speeds, tonnage, rpm, and bend allowance calculations.
  • Interpret and read blueprints and information on the basic language and symbols of the blueprint: lines, views, dimensioning procedures, sketching and notes are covered.
  • Safely demonstrate advanced machining operations, accurately measure components, and produce components with a proper finish.
  • Develop a job plan using CAM software, include machine selection, tool selection, operational sequence, speed, feed, and cutting depth, and create a multi-axis CNC program

Articulation Agreements

  • East Carolina State University 2+2 Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BSIT) Transfer Program is a degree completion curriculum designed for students who have been awarded a qualified Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in an industrial or technical related field.

The courses completed in the qualified technical AAS degree provide the foundation and half of the courses required in the major for the Industrial Technology degree. This BS degree program has the flexibility to allow students to tailor a curriculum to their specific career goals.

Employment Opportunities

Graduates should qualify for employment as machining technicians in high-tech manufacturing, rapid-prototyping and rapid-manufacturing industries, specialty machine shops, fabrication industries, and high-tech or emerging industries such as aerospace, aviation, medical, and renewable energy, and to sit for machining certification examinations.

Technical Standards

Students entering the program must meet specific emotional, behavioral, physical and cognitive standards. This information is found in the admissions office.

Students qualifying for special accommodations to these standards must contact the Disability Services Coordinator at 336-506-4130 for more specific information.

Students who are progressing in the Computer Integrated Machining program must follow the semester-by-semester curriculum plan.
