This hands-on course with a strong focus on safety and skilled operation introduces the student to a wide variety of manufacturing processes. Although heavily focused on traditional machine tools (lathes, mills, grinders, etc.), it also explores the processes of casting, welding, molding, and industrial cutting (plasma, water-jet, laser). The student works in a small group to produce functional products using today’s manufacturing standards.
