CAD/CAM - Advanced Manufacturing

CAD/CAM - Advanced Manufacturing

Northwestern Michigan College - Traverse City, MI

  • Certificate

As an NMC Advanced Manufacturing student, you will study drafting and design standards, 2D AutoCAD and 3D SolidWorks CAD software, manual machining, CNC and CAM programming, and other related topics. You may seek job opportunities as a CAD drafter or 3D modeler, CNC or CAM programmer, CNC operator, or a blend of these technologies. Manufacturing companies employing the latest technology use 3D parametric modeling (CAD) to create part and assembly models. Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machines or dedicated mass production machines are then used to make the parts. Computer Aided Machining software (CAM) generates cutter paths for the machines based on the solid models. Advanced Manufacturing graduates are ready to begin rewarding careers or transfer for a bachelor’s degree.
