PLTW: Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM)
This course introduces students to the opportunities in a manufacturing career while teaching them about designing products for manufacturability, manufacturing processes, CNC machining, factory system modeling, automation, and robotics.
Machine Technology I
Students begin to understand the process of machining, including the operation of a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) mill and lathe.
Machine Technology II
Students continue to refine the machining skills learned in Machine Technology I and will have the opportunity to complete specialized projects.
Welding Technology I
Students learn to weld and cut steel in a lab setting, using Metal Inert Gas (MIG) and Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) as well as plasma cutters and oxy-acetylene torches.
Welding Technology II
Students learn to weld and cut both steel and aluminum in a lab setting. Students continue to use MIG and SMAW welders and cutting processes as well as Gas Tungsten Arc Welders (GTAW).
