Metal Processing

Award: Career Studies

Occupational Objectives: The Metal Processing Career Studies Certificate Program is both broad and detailed enough to permit the graduate to fill a number of jobs in a company’s machine shop maintenance department, yet detailed enough to ensure that the student fully understands different types of metal processing. Layout procedures and processes on the lathe, drill press, grinding machines, and milling machines are covered in both theory and practice.

The program is structured as follows:
