Course Description

This work occurs outside the classroom at a work site performing machine tool setup and operation under the supervision of a professional machinist technician or supervisor. Department permission is required. Offered for one to eight credits based upon the number of clock hours completed at the work site. Audit available.

Addendum to Course Description

Machine Manufacturing Technology Cooperative Education students gain on-the-job training to further develop recently learned skills. Co-op often leads to permanent employment or future employment references.  

 

PREREQUISITE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE:  Students must complete at least 24 credits of machining (MCH) classes.  

Intended Outcomes for the course

 Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

Convert fractions to decimals and inches to metric noted on blue prints.
Apply mathematical formulas as appropriate to thread and taper calculations on shop drawings.
Use sine, cosine, and tangent functions to determine coordinates of a part to be machined.
Use industry specific vocabulary to communicate technical information to coworkers, clients, and or engineers.
Use professional behaviors appropriate to the work place such as punctuality, attendance, cooperation, teamwork, and respect.
Understand and apply the safety standards of the work site and the industry.
 

Course Activities and Design

 Machine Manufacturing Technology Cooperative Education students will have the opportunity to practice skills that they learned in class in actual industry settings. In some cases, students will learn other skill set not learned in the classroom setting. They will be gaining work experience for a resumé.  

Outcome Assessment Strategies

 

See Mr. Rainey or Mr. Knox for the required Co-op Ed forms.
 

 

 

Students registered for Machine Manufacturing Technology Cooperative Education will select outcomes from courses they have completed, which they want to apply in a work environment. The selected outcomes must represent significant steps toward becoming a machinist technician. The employer will evaluate student machinist technicians on achievement of the outcomes. Machine Manufacturing Technology Cooperative Education students must document work performed and hours worked during completion of Machine Manufacturing Technology Cooperative Education outcomes. Machine Manufacturing Technology Cooperative Education employers will assess students on professional, ethical attitudes and behaviors such as time management, shop safety and communication skills. This is a pass/no-pass course based on the successful completion of the learning objectives and employer evaluation.

Computation
Hours: 10

Outcomes:

Convert fractions to decimals and inches to metric noted on blue prints.
Apply mathematical formulas as appropriate to thread and taper calculations on shop drawings.
Use sine, cosine, and tangent functions to determine coordinates of a part to be machined.
 

Activities:

Content (Activities, Skills, Concepts, etc.): provide details or specifics

Students will be required to do calculations from information attained on blue prints in a production environment. The calculations will be based on trig and algebra learned in MCH 120, and MCH 130.
 

Communication
Hours: 15

Outcomes:

· Use industry specific vocabulary to communicate technical information to co-workers, clients, and or engineers.
 

Activities:


Content (Activities, Skills, Concepts, etc.): provide details or specifics

· Technical communication skills are practiced as students need to communicate questions related to higher level math. Students learn to ask specific questions related to their current problem by defining the case and what they need to complete the issue at hand.
