Courses for this program include: »

ENGT 101 Blueprint/Schematic Reading
3 cr. hrs.;
2 lecture hours; 2 lab hours per week.
Course focuses on basic interpretation and understanding of architectural, electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic, mechanical, and welding drawing/schematics. Studies provide students with basic knowledge to decipher different types of symbols found on prints and schematics. (Class may be broadened to unique and specific fields of study depending on the student preference or career field.)

ENGT 104 Fundamentals of Machining
2 cr. hrs.;
2 lecture hours; 0 lab hours per week.
This course will expose engineering technology students to the activities within a machine shop. An overview of the various machines used in a typical manufacturing process will be discussed and demonstrated.

ENGT 180 Basic Manufacturing Processes
3 cr. hrs.;
2 lecture hours; 2 lab hours per week.
Prerequisite: ENGT 104 “C” or better or instructor consent.
This is the introductory machine shop course. Topics will include shop safety, proper care and usage of hand tools, setup and usage of saws and drill presses, basic layout procedures, and the correct application of rules, calipers, and micrometers.

ENGT 231 Lathe Operations
3 cr. hrs.;
2 lecture hours; 2 lab hours per week.
Prerequisite: ENGT 180 “C” or better or instructor consent.
In this manufacturing processes course, the student will learn about lathe operations. Topics include lathe geometry, spindle and quick change gearing, saddle controls and power feeds, cross slide and compound slide
plus gibbing, backlash compensation, chucks and collets, turning, grinding, sharpening, honing, tool height and angle adjustment, and speeds and feeds.

ENGT 232 Milling Operations
3 cr. hrs.;
2 lecture ours; 2 lab hours per week.
Prerequisite: ENGT 180 “C” or better or instructor consent.
In this manufacturing processes course, the student will learn about vertical and horizontal milling. Topics include milling machine geometry, gear boxes and power feeds, correct use of spindle hand feed, correct cutter rotation for uphill milling and downhill milling and when to use each, spindle speeds and feeds, use of parallel vises, work piece clamping, alignment of vise with machine table, and backlash compensation.

ENGT 283 Advanced Machining Operations
3 cr. hrs.;
2 lecture hours; 2 lab hours per week.
Prerequisites: ENGT 231 and ENGT 232 “C” or better.
This course provides further instruction in the operation of lathes, mills, and inspection procedures. Topics include lathe and milling projects requiring heat treatment and post treatment grinding, setup and operation of surface grinders, inspection and measurement issues.

MATH 123 Technical Algebra/Trigonometry
4 cr. hrs.;
4 lecture hours; 0 lab hours per week.
Prerequisite: MATH 103 “C” or better or technical math assessment.
Trigonometric functions, vectors, complex numbers, radical equations, graphing, exponential and logarithmic functions, and related use of graphing calculator.


Gainful Employment

Gainful employment is one important measure that students and parents should pay attention to as they examine colleges and programs. All non-degree programs must be designed to lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation in order to be deemed eligible for federal student aid. These programs are generally less than 2 years in length and result in a certificate.
