ADM 110 - Precision Machining I


Course Description: This is the first of two courses providing instruction and practice in the safe, effective, and efficient operation of the types of machine tools and processes common to the Precision Machining industry.  Students will take this course after completing foundational courses in Computer Aided Design and Introduction to Manufacturing.   Completion of this course is required as part of the Engineering Technology-Precision Machining Certificate, but it will also be a valuable elective for students engaged in other Engineering Technology options.  This course will be delivered at a partnering Technical High School. Students must be able to earn the OSHA 10 hour General Industry Certification. Students will later sit for the first 5 of the 11 National Institute for Metalworking Standards (NIMS) Credentials that comprise Machining Level I (designed to meet entry-level requirements for on-the-job skills) .



Prerequisite(s): Completion of CAD 110, CAD 169, and ADM 101; and placement into Math module 80
Note(s): N/A
