CAD/CAM mechanical technicians decide how a product is to be manufactured, what types of machines are to be used, and the machining sequence required to manufacture components to industrial standards. This program prepares graduates to become Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) specialists, Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) programmers, General Machinist/CNC, quality control persons or CMM operators in the mouldmaking, tool and die, jig and fixture, and machine tool construction industries.
This program targets students who are critical thinkers and able to solve problems. They need mechanical aptitude with the ability to work independently, or as a member of a small team. Although CAM is the main focus of this program, a robust series of CAD courses is included to maximize the success of the student which offers them a competitive edge for employment.
- Offers advanced levels of training in the use of engineering workstations using fully integrated software.
- Exceptional on-site training centre in the Ford Centre for Excellence in Manufacturing.
- State-of-the-art equipment.
Graduates find excellent job opportunities as CNC operators/programmers, CMM operators, CAD designers, quality control persons and apprentices in the manufacturing industries that support the aerospace, construction, consumer products, dental, forestry, mining and telecommunications sectors.
