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.
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
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.
