AMT 101 Principles for Advanced Manufacturing 3
This course introduced the students to advanced manufacturing and the man areas into which it is incorporated. The focus of the course will be on manufacturing processes, CAD/CAM basics, robotics, sustainable design and manufacturing, and related manufacturing principles. The course is designed to give the students an understanding of advanced manufacturing’s main applications, and the many occupational possibilities it presents.
AMT 111 Fundamentals of Metal Cutting 3
This course covers machine trade theory including safety practices and working concepts of hand tools, band saws, belt sanders, pedestal grinders, drill presses, and cutting tools. It also provides practical applications including jobs and projects involving hand tools, cutting, deburring, sharpening, and grinding various cutting tools. Measuring instruments are also stressed throughout this course.
AMT 112 Subtractive Manufacturing 3
Safety, cutting speeds, types of lathes, lathe accessories, lathe operation, and measuring instruments are covered in this course. Lathe operations covered include facing, turning, center drilling, reaming, boring, tapering, knurling, and thread chasing. Information about safety, types of milling machines, milling machine attachments, milling operations are covered in this course. Milling operations include squaring a piece, locating holes, drilling operations, and milling slots. Technical competence in the use of measuring instruments is also stressed.
AMT 121 Introduction to Electricity 3
In this course, students will investigate the properties of electricity and its use in the industrial setting for powering systems and controlling them. The course will start with an introduction to electricity, its properties, and safety concerns when engaging it. The students will then work with the industrial aspects of electricity to include three phase systems for power and lower voltage systems for control purposes. Electrical safety, test and measurement of these systems to ensure proper operation will be an integral part of this course.
AMT 122 Sensors and Systems in Automation 3
This course will introduce the students to common types of detection devices used in automation and allow the student to set-up, operate and troubleshoot them in a practical setting.  The course will also introduce the student to pneumatic and vacuum systems used in the industrial setting for control of actuators and grippers in an automated system.  The student will work with hydraulic, pneumatic and vacuum systems to deal with the concepts of setup and integration of these systems into the larger control scheme of an automated system.
AMT 206 Systems Integration (Capstone Project) 4
This course will require all students to attend a scheduled weekly meeting to discuss the scope of their work, projects to be completed, project timelines, budgets, and progress made during the previous week. Successes and challenges encountered during the previous week will also be discussed. All students are expected to participate and contribute in a positive manner.
AMT 208 Internship 4
This educational experience is designed to expose the student to an actual industrial, commercial, or clinical environment. Students are placed into a contracted facility after completing 47 credit hours, maintaining a 2.0 GPA, and having met all other program prerequisites and academic requirements prior to their final spring semester. The student is expected to adhere to all policies and regulations associated with their work term facility. Students will work on projects selected to expose the student to “live” work situations, while building upon the student’s knowledge, skill and attitude as an entry-level technician. These previously mentioned criteria will also be used as a component of the student’s grade for this course. The schedule for meeting the requirement of this experience will be arranged between the student, faculty member and internship site. (Compensated or Non-Compensated position)
AMT 211 Computer Numerical Control Machining 3
This course covers the general information, such as G codes and M codes needed to program CNC lathes and vertical machining centers. CNC lathe and vertical machining center safety procedures, tooling set-up, programming, and operation are included in the practical application portion of this course. Tool offsets are also covered in this course.
AMT 213 Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing 3
This course introduces the students to the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to create 2 D geometry. Once the 2 D geometry is complete tool paths are created to machine parts, editing tool paths, and downloading appropriate information to CNC and machine.
AMT 214 Additive Manufacturing 3
This course introduces the students to Solidworks and how to create 3 D drawings. Once the part is drawn it is opened in Catalyst and printed in the 3 D printer. The part is than cleaned of the support material and checked for accuracy and functionality. The lecture portion will introduce Solidworks as well as the Additive Manufacturing processes, materials that are used, and how it is used in industry. The lab portion will allow hands on practice with Solidworks to draw 3 D contours, and how to prepare it to run on a 3 D printer. Set-up and operation of the 3 D printer as well as the rinse tank is covered in the lab portion.
AMT 221 Programmable Logic Controllers 4
This course is designed to introduce the student to modern programmable logic controllers through theory and hands on experiments with the CompactLogix Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC’s). The student will investigate the setup, configuration, programming, and implementation of the controllers through lab exercises designed to have the student build a system from beginning to end. The course then continues with an examination of the different types of hardware devices that are used in conjunction with PAC’s. An emphasis is placed on programming projects throughout the course.
AMT 223 Automation and Robotics 3
This course begins with a study of the terminology for automated and robotic systems. Then the students will work with the classifications, coordinate systems, and physical makeup of a robotic system. This course continues with an examination of the power systems, lifting capacities and applications for automation and robots. An investigation of sensors, vision, artificial intelligence, the principles and techniques involved in working with robotics.
BRT 105 Blueprint/Schematic Reading 3
This course conveys to the students an understanding of the procedures for reading and interpreting industrial prints. The course includes related peripheral information that will enhance the students’ understanding of the diversity that is characteristic of industrial prints. Many types of industrial prints and their applications will be covered during this course.
LOG 291 Total Quality Management 3
This course focuses on the development of efficient product management from production to customer relations. Various manufacturing processes are evaluated and the importance of employee input is stressed. Products are followed for quality control beyond production to purchase and warranty. Methodologies like Lean and Six Sigma will be addressed. (Prerequisites: BUS 101, MAT 121)
