Industrial Machining Technology Certificate

Program Description

Code 151 - 30 Credits

Nearly every sector of the manufacturing industry is dependent upon people with specialized machining technology training including automotive, aerospace, medical supply, furniture, metals/metal products, plastics, machinery, and even the newly developing renewable energy sector. These people work with designers to make fixtures, dies, molds, and other parts that support the manufacturing process. The Industrial Machining Technology core curriculum at Kellogg Community College prepares students to make these parts. Students may pursue either a Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Industrial Machining Technology. To earn the certificate, students must complete thirty (30) credits in the Machining Technology core curriculum.

Modules within the curriculum cover:

  • Blueprint Reading
  • CAM and CNC Programming
  • Drill Press and Band Saws
  • Electronic Discharge Machining Grinding
  • Layout Tools
  • Machinery’s Handbook
