Course Descriptions and Outlines:
This course offers students the understanding of 3D parametric solid modeling using SolidWorks. It also addresses the concepts of parametric design, design intent, and the necessary commands to carry out these functions. Items covered will be construction of 3D solid modeling parts, assemblies, and creating 2D automated drawings. Learning by example: students will design real world products with SolidWorks. This course will be taught in a state-of-the-art facility featuring the latest release of SolidWorks. (Prerequisites: RCTC CAD major or instructors permission). (4 C/1 lect, 3 lab).
This class provides an overview of common features found in prints and describes how to properly inspect them and understand blue prints. A key component of this class will be reading shop prints and inspecting finished parts. (Co-requisites: PMT 1105, 1115, 1255, 1300). (1 C/1 lect, o lab).
This course describes the basic components of a manual mill and lathe. Emphasis will also be placed on safe application and handling of equipment. (Prerequisites: None. Co-requisites: PMT 1095, PMT 1115, PMT 1255, PMT1300). (1 C).
This class introduces the basic measuring devices used in the shop to ensure part quality, inspection of parts and tool setup. Emphasis will also be placed on using measuring devises and the safe handling of the equipment. (Co-requisites: PMT 1105, 1255, 1300). (1 C/1 lect, 0 lab).
This course describes the basic components of a CNC milling and turning center with using various devices on the machines. Emphasis will also be placed on safe application and handling of the equipment. (Prerequisites: None. Co-requisites: PMT 1095, PMT 1105, PMT 1115, PMT 1300). (1 C).
This course explains the arrangement and orientation of the basic axes on a common CNC lathe and CNC mill. This course identifies the various offsets used on both the lathe and the mill to properly reference each cutting tool in relationship to the workpiece. Emphasis will also be placed on safe application and handling of the equipment. (Prerequisites: PMT 1095, PMT 1105, PMT 1115, PMT 1255, PMT 1300). (1 C).
This course identifies how each department and function of a company plays a role in producing quality products for the customer. Focus is placed on the impact quality assurance has on a companys sucess. (Co-requisites: PMT 1705, PMT 1755, PMT 1855, PMT 1900, PMT 1950). (1 C).
This course introduces the fundamental concepts of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) and describes the main types of tolerances. (Prerequisites: None). (1 C).
This course is an open lab in machining fundamentals. The student will have hands on experience on manual and basic CNC machine shop equipment. Topics of study include safety, measuring parts to print, proper set up, speeds and feeds, and cutting tool usage. (Prerequisites: PMT 1095, PMT 1105, PMT 1115, PMT 1255, PMT 1300). (4 C).
This course is designed to provide the student with occupational experience in the manufacturing field. Each internship is individualized. A training plan is created for each student along with the training site. A contract with the skills and knowledge is created for each student. (Prerequisites: PMT 1095, PMT 1105, PMT 1115, PMT1255, PMT 1300. Co-rerequisites: CAD 1039, CAD 1230, PMT 1300, PMT 1705, PMT 1755, PMT 1825, PMT 1855, PMT 1900). (4 C).
