Engineering Technology/Fabrication Certificate

Curriculum ENT.FAB.CERT (C448S)

The Engineering Technology/Fabrication curriculum provides the student with field experience to advance their knowledge of modern elements of fabrication, from an introduction to manufacturing with shop safety and manual machining operations through the use of CAD/CAM software interfacing with automated CNC equipment. Also included in the certificate is a course on the basics of machine elements, needed in the repair and maintenance of the high-end equipment of today’s automated manufacturing facilities.

Upon successful completion of the Engineering Technology/Fabrication Certificate program, the student will be able to:

  • utilize effective, safety-enhancing workplace practices in multiple industries;
  • demonstrate an understanding of quality practices and measurement;
  • identify basic fundamental of blueprint reading;
  • determine resources and workflow required of the production process;
  • document product and process compliance with customer requirements;
  • recognize potential maintenance problems, issues or concerns with basic production systems;
  • recognize preventative maintenance indicators to ensure correct operations;
  • identify different types of basic production and related mechanical principles, mechanical linkages, and production materials;
  • demonstrate use of basic math skills to facilitate technical competencies; and
  • set for taking the national Certified Production Technician (MSSC-CPT) exam.
