Manufacturing Technology

Manufacturing Technology is a comprehensive program of instruction designed to develop knowledge of scientific principle, mathematical concepts, and technical skills.

Acquire Job Entry Skills

It includes laboratory experiences found in machining, welding, and related technologies. These expriences will enable the student to enter industry with problem-solving skills in design, production planning, materials handling, quality control, inspection, and programming with computer-aided controls.  The student, upon the successful completion of the program, will have a job-entry skill.

Courses

MFGT 20—Principles of Machine Shop  (3 units)        CSU
Basic set-up and operation of the engine lathe, vertical milling machine, drilling machines, bandsaws, and grinding machines; emphasis also focuses on precision measurement, including tooling selection for above machines and introduction to computer numerical controlled milling.  Includes safety in all aspects of machining. (LM)

MFGT 21—Intermediate Machine Shop  (3 units)        CSU
Emphasis in intermediate-level machine shop, centers on the set-up and operation of the horizontal milling machine, surface grinder, vertical milling machine, engine lathe, tool and cutter grinder, precision layout, and safety practices. Machines will be used to develop intermediate-level skills acquired in MFGT 20 or equivalent. Production of a tool using the machine shop with special emphasis on the concept of fits. (LM)

MFGT 24L—Introduction to Physical Metallurgy
                (3 units)                                                              CSU
Basic course in physical metallurgy.  Metal structure, mechanical testing and metallurgical examination will be emphasized. Not open for credit to student with credit in APSCI 24 or 24L, or MFGT 24. (LM)

MFGT 34R—Computer Numerical Control  (3 units)   CSU
Manual programming computer numerically controlled machine tools and processes using the standard G code fomat.  Programs will include linear interpolation, circular interpolation and helical interpolation.  Canned cycles and macros are also used.  (LM) (Repeatable: May be taken four times only.)

MFGT 35—Computer Aided Manufacture  (3 units)                                        CSU
The use of a CAM (computer aided manufacturing) software system to learn about features, solids, geometry, and surfaces in the production of parts through the use of a CNC lathe and milling machine. (LM)

MFGT 60R—Problems in Manufacturing Technology                                    (v.5-2 units)
