associate in science (as), metal fabrication technology
Plan Code: 2984 – Begin your career with an Associate Degree to prepare for entry positions in sheet metal layout, fabrication, and installation. The AS Degree will provide students with the technical competencies required to meet the demands of the metal fabrication industries. This degree will also provide the General Education courses that help build the scope of knowledge and self-confidence that prepare students for the working environment.
PROGRAM STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES:
- Students will perform a common sheet metal layout and fabrication project.
- Perform common metal fabrication using power machinery to produce a fabrication project.
- Demonstrate the ability to read and interpret construction blueprints.
- Analyze and apply software to design a sheet metal part and export it to the CNC plasma table in the proper vector format.
- Design and fabricate an advanced sheet metal project involving two different pieces of CNC fabrication equipment.
certificate of achievement, core skills
Plan Code: 3982 – The Core Skills Certificate of Achievement will prepare students for an entry-level position as a trainee in sheet metal layout, fabrication, and installment.
certificate of achievement, advanced skills
Plan Code: 3983 – The Advanced Skills Certificate of Achievement will prepare students for entry-level positions as a trainee in sheet metal layout, fabrication, and installation. This certificate of achievement will add emphasis on sheet metal CNC fabrication, drafting and welding, and provide preparation for acceptance into and apprenticeship on one of the metalworking trades.
