Computer-Aided Machining and High Performance Manufacturing
The Computer-Aided Machining and High Performance Manufacturing (CAM/HPM) Program provides a broad base of experience in manufacturing and machining so that students will realize the diversity of this field. Occupational areas include machining, tool and die making, precision machining, metal forming, manufacturing, production work, and industrial maintenance. Alcore, EFC Systems, Sumatech, Surface Technologies, Crown Cork and Seal, Nutek, Tera Tech, Link Gear, Clorox Products Manufacturing, Cytec, Diversified Machine, Bottcher, ASI Design and Manufacturing, Harford Machine Shop, B&B Precision Wire, Metal Refinishing, Moxley's, and Black and Decker are just a few of the area businesses where students may find employment.
Successful students in the program possess excellent math skills in whole numbers, fractions, decimals (four places), basic algebra, geometry, and some trigonometry. Students also exhibit attention to detail, are precise and accurate, and have the ability to work and communicate well with others. Graduates successfully completing the program have skills that will allow them to achieve a good income within a few years of graduation, and they are well prepared for higher education if they so desire. Students may enter two- or four-year college programs seeking degrees in mechanical or industrial engineering. Graduates may also choose to enter four-or five year apprenticeship programs.
