The Computer-Aided Manufacturing certificate program is designed for students with a background in conventional machining who are interested in preparing to become Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine operators. Students learn in modern classrooms that provide hands-on experience on state-of-the-art software and machinery.
The CAM Certificate is a full-time program that can be completed in two 8-week sessions. Students without previous experience or background in conventional machining should first complete the non-credit Conventional Precision Manufacturing (CPM) certificate program.

Upon successful completion of all Computer-Aided Manufacturing certificate program requirements, graduates will:
Understand of blueprint reading and related concepts including geometric dimension and tolerancing systems.
Demonstrate the ability to use measurement in the manufacturing process and develop quality control process, sample, and inspection plans.
Understand basic manufacturing, metal machining and fabrication processes.
Demonstrate the use of CNC commands on NC control simulators and on CNC machines.
Understand the history, theory, objectives and tools of lean manufacturing.
Demonstrate an understanding of how Mastercam® software is used for CNC programming of 2- and 3-axis machines.
