Principles of Manufacturing:

Principles of Manufacturing is designed to provide students with exposure to various occupations and pathways in the Advanced Manufacturing career cluster, such as Machining Technology, Electromechanical Technology, Mechatronics, and Welding. In order to gain a holistic view of the advanced manufacturing industry, students will complete all core standards, as well as standards in two focus areas. Throughout the course, they will develop an understanding of the general steps involved in the manufacturing process and master the essential skills to be an effective team member in a manufacturing production setting. Course content covers basic quality principles and processes, blueprints and schematics, and systems. Upon completion of this course, proficient students will advance from this course with a nuanced understanding of how manufacturing combines design and engineering, materials science, process technology, and quality. Upon completion of the Principles of Manufacturing course, students will be prepared to make an informed decision regarding which Advanced Manufacturing program of study to pursue.

Principles of Machining I:

Principles of Machining I is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge to be effective in production environments as a machinist, CNC operator, or supervisor. Upon completion of this course, proficient students will demonstrate safety practices concerning machining technology, proper measurement and layout techniques, reading and interpreting drawings and blueprints, production design processes, and quality control procedures. Upon completion of this course, students will be knowledgeable about potential postsecondary education and career opportunities related to machining technology and will be prepared to enroll in more advanced machining courses in high school.

Principles of Machining II:

Principles of Machining II is an advanced level contextual course that builds on the introductory skills learned in the entry-level manufacturing and machining courses, stressing the concepts and practices in a production environment supported by advanced machining and engineering facilities. Working with the course instructor and team members in a cooperative learning environment, students will design, produce, and maintain products that are defined by detailed technical specifications. Emphasis is placed on quality control, safety and engineering codes and standards, and production-grade machining systems, building on the learner’s past knowledge, current experiences, and future conduct as a career machinist. Upon completion of this course, proficient students will be able to examine blueprints and specification drawings to plan and implement the manufacture of products, machine parts to specifications using both manual and computer controlled machine tools, and measure, examine, and test completed products to check for defects and conformance to specifications.

Manufacturing Practicum:

Manufacturing Practicum is a capstone course intended to provide students with the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge learned in previous Advanced Manufacturing courses within a professional, working environment. While continuing to add to their technical skill sets, students in this course assume increasing responsibility for overseeing manufacturing processes and managing complex projects. Specifically, proficient students will be able to work in teams to plan the production of a sophisticated product; develop troubleshooting and problem-solving mechanisms to ensure that projects run smoothly; analyze output and compile professional reports, and connect practicum activities to career and postsecondary opportunities. For all projects undertaken in this course, students are expected to follow the focus area in their chosen program of study (Machining Technology, Electromechanical Technology, Mechatronics, or Welding), while also refining skills previously acquired to achieve deeper levels of mastery. Upon completion of the practicum, proficient students will be prepared for postsecondary study and career advancement in their chosen focus area.  

Introduction to Electromechanical:

Introduction to Electromechanical is a foundational course that introduces students to basic electromechanical skills necessary in a manufacturing facility. Topics covered include safety, construction drawings, site layout, hand and power tools, linear and angular measurements, and application of algebraic and geometric principles to construction problems. Upon completion of this course, proficient students will be able to understanding, describe, and troubleshoot electromechanical systems.

Advanced Electromechanical Technology:

Advanced Electromechanical Technology is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to effectively perform basic industrial maintenance procedures in an advanced manufacturing facility. Students in this course develop proficiency in a vast array of electromechanical domains, including: fundamental safety practices in electromechanical technology, shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), basic metal inert gas (MIG) welding, electrical systems, AC and DC motors, calibrating instruments, drive systems, pipe fabrication, hydraulic systems, pumps, digital electronics, programmable logic controllers (PLC), and troubleshooting procedures. Upon completion of this course, proficient students will be prepared to pursue postsecondary electromechanical technology programs and entry-level industrial maintenance technology careers in the advanced manufacturing industry.
