Provide students with knowledge and understanding of CATIA for employment advancement as a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programmer in the manufacturing industry.
Students will develop proficiencies in basic to more advanced functions of CATIA, including organization and navigation of model and assembly functions, managing profiles, saving parts in a CATIA environment, creating simple and complex parts and assemblies, understanding of CATIA’s product hierarchy principles, and utilization of different tools and techniques for designing products using a variety materials. Students will also develop skills in programming, preparing, and operating CNC machining centers. Students will utilize knowledge in blueprint reading, shop math, precision measuring, and CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Drawing & Computer-Aided Machining) to interpret data from CATIA and evaluate machining codes to manufacture designed products.
