Introduction to careers in aerospace and related industries. Hands-on practice in basic electrical/electronic laboratory procedures including measurement, meters, use and maintenance of other tools and equipment. Emphasizes personal safety and maintaining a safe workplace.
An introductory course focusing on the history, purpose and safe operations of machine tools, primarily the lathe, milling machine and associated tooling. Students will learn machine limits, modern and historic practices, as well as construct assigned projects. Emphasis on tool speeds, feeds, layout, shop math and proper material selection.
An intermediate course focusing on the creation of machine tooling for both lathes and milling machines. The course focus will include: metallurgy, heat treatment, precision grinding, cutting geometry, bit sharpening and unique tooling. Students will also gain a working knowledge of GD&T. Prerequisites: INDT 105.
Students will demonstrate and build proficiency in manual or conventional machining skills. Student and instructor will agree on a complex project that student will create. Course will also begin the exploration of G-Code programming and basic CNC operation. Prerequisites: INDT 115.
Designed to introduce commonly used metal fabrication techniques. Including but not limited to: measuring instrumentation, metal preparation, welding, machines (drills, saws, grinders, mills and lathes), and metal bending devices. Emphasis placed on the safe use of tooling, preplanning and fabrication of structurally sound projects. Prerequisites: WELD 128,131,132 (or concurrent enrollment in any of the three).
Introduces an intermediate level of fabrication techniques such as measurement instrumentation, metal preparation, welding, machines (drills, saws, grinders, mills and lathes) and metal benders. Emphasis is placed on the safe use of tooling, pre-planning and fabrication of structurally sound projects. Prerequisites: INDT 135.
Designed to introduce commonly used sheet metal fabrication techniques, including but not limited to: measuring, shearing, bending, lay-out, metal preparation, welding, machines (drills, saws, grinders, brakes, shears) and hand-held specialized sheet-metal tooling. Emphasis placed on the safe use of tooling, pre-planning, proper fitment and the fabrication of structurally sound projects. Prerequisites: WELD 128 or WELD 131 or WELD 132 or appropriate industry experience.
An overview of the proper maintenance associated with industrial and commercial equipment. Both mechanical and electrical hands-on skills will be included. Students will study bearing and bearing failures, vibration analysis, thermal imaging, specific plant safety hazards and the monetary benefits of a well-executed maintenance strategy.
Intermediate course that explores the basics of 2D CAM programming. The students will also longhand program complex parts and fixtures. CNC operation and offset adjustments will become more prevalent this quarter. Prerequisites: INDT 125.
Students will demonstrate and build proficiency in CNC machining skills. Students and instructor will agree on complicated project that student will create. Strong emphasis on intermediate CAM programming, in-depth machine setup, and independent operation of CNC machines. Prerequisites: INDT 205.
An advanced course that will explore 3D CAM programming in addition to showcasing the skills obtained in the previous five quarters. Students will discover potential job opportunities, create résumés, fill-out applications and plan their career path. Prerequisites: INDT 215.
Culmination of year-long certificate program including final project. Includes review for industry certification testing, guidance for compilation of simple portfolio for job-seeking purposes, and other job-seeking activities. Prerequisites: instructor signature.
Provides a capstone experience for the digital design program, including practical application of the design and computer skills learned within the degree, portfolio development, and industry familiarity. Prerequisites: capstone of program sequence, taken in the last quarter.
Intended to provide authentic experiences in the world of work by applying knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to a working environment. Variable credit class. Prerequisites: instructor's signature.
