Associate of Applied Science Degree

Program Coordinator:     Melinda Leland, ADM 101, Ext. 2430
Length:                                 Four semesters (two years)
Note: Program is not accepting new students at this time.

Purpose: In addition to satisfying the needs of those students who enroll for the four-semester program three other groups are served: First, those who have completed the three-semester Computer Numerical Control Machining Program that is presently being offered; second, graduates of other schools who have completed a comparable one-year program; third, machine tool operators in industry who want to upgrade their skills. The program is designed to provide both theory and shop experiences of an advanced nature in the machining field.

Occupational Objectives: 

    Machinist 
    Tool and Die Maker 
    Machine Shop Supervisor 
    Inspector 
    Computer Numerical Control Operator and Programmer

Admission Requirements: Students are required to meet the general requirements of the college as contained in this catalog. Students from other schools or colleges or with appropriate industrial experience should submit transcripts or other documentation for evaluation and advanced placement.

Program Requirements: The Computer Numerical Control Machine Operations Curriculum consists of courses in both the machining and general education areas. Instruction will include both concepts of machining and practical applications on machine tools. Each student should consult with his/her counselor and faculty advisor in planning a program and selecting his/her electives. Upon completion of the four-semester program listed on this page, the graduate will be awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
