ATS Precision Machining Technology
Precision Machining Technology (formerly known as Computer Integrated Manufacturing) is a Seniors only program and is offered only in the A.M.
In this program, students will learn integration in industrial manufacturing which is the key to providing high precision and intricate machined metals parts into the world’s growing demand for extremely technical design. With the assistance of computer-aided drafting and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) the gap between manufacturing and engineering tightens. The results of this integration are higher standards of precision and quality along with programming, set-up, and machine cycle time reduction of CNC machining centers and turning centers.
Students enrolled in a Career Education program are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. Students must be able to follow instructions and work as a member of a team to achieve the course objectives. Students are expected to be accurate, have a positive attitude, and maintain good attendance throughout the school year.
