Introduces methods for creating three-dimensional models using CATIA V5 software. Topics include product structure, sketcher, solid modeling, drafting, assembly, surface modeling and sheet metal design. Basic computer skills are required.

1 Campus Location

A study and operation of primarily flux cored arc welding. The student will learn about the different types of electrodes, fluxes and shielding gases used in these processes. Students will be able to weld in all positions, read some basic weld symbols, and have a basic understanding of written welding procedures.

2 Campus Locations

Demonstrates welding on steel sheet metals and plates. Emphasis is placed on axial spray, pulse spray and short circuit mode of transfer. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to weld in all positions, read basic weld symbols, and have an understanding of written welding procedures.

Covers the very basics of AutoCAD - introduction to the user interface, basic drawing commands, basic editing commands, and basic viewing commands for making two dimensional (2D) drawings. Layer management, object properties, extracting information from the drawing, plotting and layouts, advanced annotation, creating and modifying blocks are covered. This course will give the student a comfort level for working within the AutoCAD environment and the knowledge needed for more advanced CAD courses offered within the various degree programs.

1 Campus Location

Will introduce the student to the basics of the SolidWorks software. Close attention will be paid to properly navigating the interface. Sketching, dimensional and geometric constraints, part modeling, drawing creation, and assembly modeling will all be examined.

1 Campus Location

Provides a survey of multiple robot programs, safety and safety systems, learning maintenance, and program editing. Students will work with robot fixtures using the GMAW process.

2 Campus Locations

Provides an overview of the three basic welding processes: wire feed welding (GMAW, FCAW), stick welding (SMAW), and TIG welding (GTAW). The lab work is equally divided among the welding processes.

1 Campus Location

Introduces the process commonly called the wire feed process for MIG welding. This course covers the solid wire, flux cored and metal cored methods of wire feed welding. Safety, power source setup and adjustment, gas selection and proper wire selection are taught. This course focuses on mild steel materials.

1 Campus Location

Focuses on the process commonly referred to as Heliarc or TIG welding. This course covers GTAW relating to stainless steel and aluminum. Students set up and operate the power source. Safety and the selection of the proper electrode and the proper filler metal are emphasized.

1 Campus Location

Covers safety and basic welding fundamentals in SMAW, stick electrode and GMAW, wire welding. Various welding techniques will be taught in creating a metal sculpture. The basic supply list includes safety glasses, skull cap, and welding gloves.
