Bring your ideas to life by learning how to use a 3D solid modeling system and design parts and assemblies in a high tech precision machine shop as a student in the Manufacturing Technology program at Columbia Basin College. The aerospace, medical, defense, research labs, and custom parts manufacturers along with many other industries hire people who can design and produce the products that we need and use in our everyday lives. There is a high demand for a skilled workforce for people just like you!
The CBC Manufacturing Technology curriculum includes trade support theory courses in conjunction with laboratory training and general education courses. CBC's Manufacturing Technology program offers the following degree and certificate:
Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree in Manufacturing Technology: Machinists run high tech equipment such as lathes, milling machines, and grinding machines to produce precision parts, assembly, fixtures and tools. They also use software to program multi axis computer controlled machines (CNC) and use sophisticated inspection equipment such as a computer coordinate measuring machine to insure the parts are in tolerance and of quality standards.
SolidWorks Certificate: Designers use parametric solid modeling software to design product, tools, and fixtures used in the manufacturing process.
At the end of the program successful students will be able to:
The program requires students achieve a minimum grade of 2.0 to be able to continue enrollment in major courses. The Associate in Applied Science degree also requires a minimum grade of 2.0 for each major course. A student who achieves a grade of 1.9 or lower in any required major courses may repeat that course once to attempt to achieve a grade of 2.0 or higher. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Dean of the program prior to enrollment and must be based on extenuating circumstances.
