Course Abbreviation: MFG 106
Course Title: Special Machining Practices
Catalog Course Description:
This is a capstone course in which students refine their skills working independently to
produce final projects using conventional or CNC machine tools and CAD/CAM
Prerequisites: Instructor's permission
Course Content Learning Outcomes:
Students will observe all occupational health and safety rules.
Students will be able to do a machining job with the correct sequence of
operations to produce a work piece to the specifications on the blueprint.
Students will be able to select the correct tooling and work holding devices for
more advanced machining operations.
Students will be able to correctly use micrometers, dial calipers, vernier scales,
steel rules, dial indicators and optical comparators.
Campus-Wide Learning Outcomes:
Responsibility is practiced as students use the time clock to account for their
weekly study hours and as they learn and apply occupational health and safety
Critical thinking is practiced as students study their blueprints and determine the
best way to machine their work pieces and then plan their machining procedures.
Quantitative and symbolic reasoning is taught as students use arithmetic and
trigonometry to calculate the correct dimensions of their work pieces. This
quantitative and symbolic reasoning is assessed by quizzes and by evaluating
students’ written calculations and measuring students’ finished work pieces.
Written communication is practiced as students develop a written plan for
machining their work pieces.
Group-paced study supplemented with individual, small group lecture, audio-visual
materials, hands-on application, and practice of learned skills. Machining competencies
will be performed on shop and customer projects and evaluated according to industry
