Casper College’s Manufacturing Technology certificate and degree programs focus on high-tech manufacturing in the areas of laser manufacturing equipment, manual and computer-aided machine tool technology, and welding. Manufacturing Technology graduates are well prepared to set up and operate laser equipment, machine tools such as lathes, mills and grinders, and specialized welding equipment to manufacture or repair precision parts and products. This career may also include CNC programmers who write the computer program that operates automated machines. Students graduating from this program can work in small family-owned shops or at large manufacturing facilities

CMAP 1750 Spreadsheet Applications I (.5L,1LB,1CR): 
Designed to integrate information processing and spreadsheet problems and to create applications for the modern business environment. Extra laboratory work may be required.

ENTK 1510 Drafting I (2L,4LB,4CR): 
An introductory course in industrial communications through technical drawing and computer-aided drafting. Topics include, sketching, lettering, plan geometry, multiview and axonometric projections dimensioning using traditional drafting instruments and computer aided drafting equipment.

ENTK 1650 Mechanical Drafting & Design (2L,4LB,4CR): 
A continuation of the instruction received in ENTK 2510, this is an intermediate mechanical design course focusing on assembly modeling using both top-down and bottomup techniques. Application of design intent on part and assembly models instructs the student to predict how design changes will impact the model. The students learn to integrate weldments, fasteners, sheet metal parts and web based design tools into assemblies. In addition, students realize the importance of file
management tools in assemblies. Prerequisite: ENTK 2510 or permission of instructor.

ENTK 2510 CAD-3D Modeling (2L,4LB,4CR): 
An introductory course in 3D solid modeling. The student will learn basic part and assembly modeling techniques with an emphasis on design intent. Standard 3 view part prints including section, detail and exploded views will be created. Prerequisite: ENTK 1510 or instructor permission.

MCHT 1640 Basic Machining Practice (4L,12LB,10CR): 
Introduction to benchwork and machining processes. Includes work on saws, drilling machines, engine lathes, milling machines.

MCHT 2780 Computer Numerical Control I (2L,4LB,4CR): 
Investigation and justification of numerical control of machine tools, types of control units and systems, feedback systems, and programming. Instruction is focused on operation of three axis milling machine. Working knowledge of basic machining processes is suggested.

MCHT 2790 Computer Numerical Control II (2L,4LB,4CR): 
Continuation of MCHT 2780. Direct programming of CNC machine tools and introduction to computer assisted programming. Focus on setup and operation of two axis lathe with FANUC controller.

MCHT 2800 Computer-Assisted Manufacturing (2L,2LB,3CR): 
Computer applications in programming machine tools. Part programming using SurfCam, a menu-driven software package, to acquaint students with a CAD/CAM system.

WELD 1700 General Welding (.5L,1LB,1CR) or (1L,3LB,2.5CR):
Includes the study of oxyacetylene welding, cutting and brazing (OAW, OAC), and Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) processes. Students should develop skills necessary to produce quality welds on mild steel joints utilizing both processes.

WELD 1820 GMAW and GTAW Welding (1L,3LB,2.5CR): 
Provides basic instruction in the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) and Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) processes. Emphasis on safety, machine set-up and trouble-shooting, and power sources. Students should develop skills necessary to produce quality welds on mild steel, aluminum, and stainless steel joints utilizing both processes.

WELD 1910 Specialized Welding and Joining (2L,2LB,3CR): 
Emphasizes unique applications of hard-to-join metals and plastics. Utilizing modern technology, students are exposed to new dimensions in welding. Various laboratory exercises will cover plasma, submerged arc welding, resistance spot welding, metal surfacing, thermal torch spraying, thermoplastic welding. Prerequisite: WELD 1710, 1780 and 2510.

WELD 2680 Welding Metallurgy (2L,2LB,3CR): 
Instruction in different grain structures of commonly used metals and their reaction to heat treatment, welding machining, surface treatments, and mechanical stress. Various laboratory exercise on stress relief, shrinkage, fatigue, ingotism, and cooling rates will be presented. Designed for anyone interested in welding, machining, or industrial arts requiring knowledge of classification and characteristics of metals.

Welding Student
TIG welding is one of the types of welding used in the manufacturing process. This Casper College welding student is doing TIG style welding.
Machine Tool student
CNC machine tool equipment is used in the manufacturing process to produce precision machined products. This student is setting up and programming a CNC system.
