Manufacturing/ Engineering Technology: Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Technician

Certificate of Completion

About the Program

This three-term certificate program integrates conventional manufacturing techniques with computer numerical control (CNC) manufacturing skills. Computer aided drafting (CAD) is used as a basic tool in the manufacturing engineering process. In addition to technical training, students receive a solid education in mathematics, along with human relations and computer skills courses. Graduates typically enter the workforce as computer numerical control (CNC) technicians or computer aided design drafters. With additional on-the-job experience, this training facilitates movement into fields such as quality control inspector and CNC programmer. This certificate completes the first-year requirements for RCC’s Manufacturing and Engineering Technology AAS degree program.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for the Manufacturing/Engineering Technology Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Technician Certificate of Completion are:

  • Set up, operate, and program manual lathes to print specifications.
  • Interpret and create mechanical blueprints to industry standards.
  • Troubleshoot manufacturing processes and procedures.
  • Demonstrate the ability to adhere to personal and industry safety standards to protect personnel and equipment.
  • Operate and program CNC mills and lathes to print specifications.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies and the Manufacturing and Engineering Technology Department chair’s recommendation. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over four years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate program coordinator before being accepted toward core requirements. Official transcripts must be filed with the Enrollment Services Office and the Manufacturing/Engineering Technology Department.

Credits earned in the successful completion of Career Pathway Certificates can be applied to other certificates and degrees in the Career Pathway. For more information, speak to a program advisor.

Graduation Requirements

Students must complete all courses in this program with a grade of “C” or better to receive their certificates. Certain required courses are graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate. Where zero credits are listed in the, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult an advisor with any program completion questions.
