Plan Code: 2984
This program will provide the student with the technical competencies required to meet the demands of the metal fabrication industries. This degree will place added emphasis on CNC metal fabrication, design, welding and advance manufacturing techniques and help prepare the student for acceptance into apprenticeship in one of the metalworking trades. The Associate Degree will also provide the General Education courses that help build the scope of knowledge and self-confidence that prepare a student for the working environment.
Program Student Learning Outcomes
- Demonstrate the ability to attain the Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLOs).
- Perform a common sheet metal layout and fabrication project.
- Perform common metal fabrication using power machinery to produce a fabrication project.
- Design and fabricate an advanced sheet metal project involving two different pieces of CNC fabrication equipment.
