Training for a Precise Industry
Work with your hands, channel your creativity and bring your ideas to life for a skilled, high-demand job. As a student in the Manufacturing Department at CBC, you’ll work with high-tech precision machines in a state-of-the-art facility. Learn how to use a 3D solid modeling system and design the parts and assemblies necessary for the products we use in our everyday lives. You can transition this skillset into a variety of settings, including aerospace, medical and defense industries, as well as research laboratories and custom parts manufacturers.
When you complete the AAS program, you will be able to:
- demonstrate manual machining skills, grinding skills and blueprint reading skills
- operate high-tech equipment such as CNC and electrical discharge machines
- demonstrate computer-aided drafting, solid modeling and computer-aided manufacturing
- use math and problem-solving skills
Machinists run high-tech equipment such as lathes, milling machines and grinding machines to produce precision parts, assemblies, fixtures and tools. They also use software to program multi-axis computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines and use sophisticated inspection equipment such as computer coordinate measuring machines to ensure the parts are in tolerance and of quality standards.
