The machining industry has changed over the years and Craven Community College is at the forefront of today’s advanced machining processes. The Computer-Integrated Machining program prepares students with the analytic, creative and innovative skills necessary to take a production idea from initial concept through design, development and production, resulting in a finished product.
The Computer-Aided Machining program provides students with real-world knowledge and understanding of today’s machining practices. Coursework make include manual machining, computer applications, engineering design, computer-aided drafting(CAD), computer-aided machining(CAM), basic and advanced machining operations, precision measurement and high-speed multi-axis machining.
Graduates are prepared or employment as machining technicians in high-tech manufacturing, rapid-prototyping and rapid-manufacturing industries, specialty machine shops, and fabrication industries. They are also ready to work in high-tech or emerging industries such as aerospace, aviation, medical, and renewable energy, and to sit for machining certification examinations.
Successful graduates of this program may find employment opportunities in the following areas:
- Aerospace product and parts manufacturing
- Motor vehicle parts manufacturing
- Metalworking machinery manufacturing
- Machine shops
- Other industrial machining industry’s
While the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) Degree can lead to immediate job placement upon graduation, Craven Community College has a special relationship for transfer to Bachelor’s of Science (BS) Degree in Industrial Technology with East Carolina University.
