MACHINE TOOL NUMERICAL CONTROL TECHNOLOGY

Associate in Applied Science (MTT.CNC.AAS)

   The Machine Tool Numerical Control Option of the Machine Tool Technology Program emphasizes the concepts of automatically operating machines through the use of a punch tape or directly from a computer. Instruction will include programming techniques, dimensional tape and computer controls, numerical control (NC) and computer numerical control (CNC) machine tool operations. In addition, the interfacing of automated equipment with computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) systems will be addressed.
