The manufacturing technologies, machining emphasis AAS degree program, is a two-year program designed to provide training and technical job skills to students seeking employment and/or skill upgrades within the manufacturing and machine trades. The program requires students to complete a variety of hands-on learning exercises ranging from manually machined projects to advanced multi-axis CNC tasks. This program is formated to respond to the needs of industry and the working professional. The TMCC machining emphasis AAS curriculum aligns with the standards set forth by the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) and prepares students to earn a variety of NIMS credentials.

Degree Outcomes

Students completing the degree will:

  • Fulfill the requirements of the Associate of Applied Science.
  • Demonstrate competency in their specified emphasis.

Emphasis Outcomes

Students completing the emphasis will:

  • Read and interpret technical prints for the production and inspection of manufactured work pieces.
  • Produce precision machined work pieces within print specifications on manually controlled machine tools.
  • Produce precision machined work pieces within print specifications on computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine tools.
 

AAS degrees are generally non-transfer degrees that are designed for students to enter the workforce.

To earn an AAS degree, students must:

  1. Maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (see requirements for graduation.)
  2. Complete a minimum of 15 units within the college.
  3. Satisfy General Education requirements for the AAS.
