CAD/CAM - CADM.COC


Return to School of Engineering Technologies and Math Return to: School of Engineering Technologies and Math

The CAD/CAM certificate is designed to provide students with basic manufacturing and design skills. This certificate can be completed in one year (two semesters); however, it must be started in the fall semester.

The CAD portion of the CAD/CAM certificate prepares the student for an entry level position as a design detailer using AutoCAD or similar CAD software. Students gain skills in 2D and 3D part creation including geometrical dimensioning practices. Students who complete this certificate are prepared for employment as entry level detailers using any CAD system. The CAM portion of the CAD/CAM certificate program prepares the student for an entry-level position in any manufacturing company. The student will be capable of taking a part print, determining the appropriate method for manufacturing, programming the part, then setting up and running a CNC machine. Students will be able to inspect the finished pieces for quality compliance. Students who complete the required course of study can assume entry-level positions as CNC programmers, CNC machine operators, inspectors, or technical sales representatives. Students also learn the integration of CAD with CAM to obtain a fundamental understanding of how to proceed from the design stage to manufacturing.

Upon successful completion of the requirements for this program, a Certificate of Completion in CAD/CAM from STCC will be awarded.
