MNFP 105C         Engineering Drawing I

Understanding and interpreting engineering drawings is an essential tool for the machine tool technician. Basic engineering drawing practices will be covered including multi-view projection, dimensioning, section and auxiliary views, basic GDandT concepts, and hole/thread callouts. Sketching assignments will reinforce common drawing practices and conventions. While the course focuses on reading and understanding drawings, a basic introduction to computer-aided design (CAD) will be included.

Lecture Hours: 2   Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours: 2   Credit Hours: 3

MNFP 110C         CNC Programming and Operation I

This course covers fundamentals of computer numerical control (CNC). Basic programming and operation of CNC machines are covered. The course begins with manual programming practices so the student will understand the programming code and its structure. Standard safety conventions will be introduced for safe programming practice. Computer simulation exercises will facilitate the learning process as the student gains practice in checking and trouble-shooting programs. The basic operation of CNC milling machines and lathes are covered. The lab uses software simulations where students test their program prior to use on the CNC machines and actual CNC machine operation. The lab is geared so that students will understand what and how the program and machine will function. (Prerequisite: MNFP 101C)

Lecture Hours: 3   Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours: 3   Credit Hours: 4

MNFP 112C         CNC Programming and Operation II

This course is a continuation of CNC Programming and Operation I. Advanced programming methods and practices are covered in more detail. An introduction to computer aided manufacturing (CAM) is used to generate more complex part geometries using a software package. Advanced machine operations will also be covered such as 4-axis programming and machining. The lab will allow the student to practice programming skills and give them additional practice time on actual CNC machines. (Prerequisite: MNFP 110C)

Lecture Hours: 3   Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours: 3    Credit Hours: 4

MNFP 114C         Applied Shop Mathematics II

This is a second course in Applied Shop Mathematics covering in-depth practical mathematical problems taken from the machine tool industry. Emphasis is placed on applied geometry and applied trigonometry using various techniques and methods to solve complex toolroom type machine problems. (Prerequisite: MNFP 104C)

Lecture Hours: 3    Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours: 0    Credit Hours: 3

MNFP 115C         Engineering Drawing II

This is a second course in reading, interpreting, and analyzing engineering drawings and the information conveyed to the machine operator or tool maker. This course will give the student more exposure to engineering drawings and a better understanding for interpretation of the information presented. Students will also create hand sketches and be introduced to computer-aided design (CAD) software to create working drawings. (Prerequisite: MNFP 105C)

Lecture Hours: 2    Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours: 2    Credit Hours: 3

MNFP 203C         Manufacturing Processes III

A third course in manufacturing processes covers complicated machine tool techniques and processes used in general machine shop practice. High precision machine work is the focus with tool making projects. Students will make various complicated lab projects that reflect tool-making ability. (Prerequisite: MFNP 102C)

Lecture Hours: 1    Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours: 9    Credit Hours: 4

MNFP 204C         Manufacturing Processes IV

A fourth course in manufacturing processes covers more elaborate tool-making concepts and techniques. Lab projects include complicated machining of high tolerance parts. Lab work will include the traditional manual machines as well as CNC machining centers. (Prerequisite: MNFP 203C)

Lecture Hours: 1    Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours: 9    Credit Hours: 4
