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