Intended Outcomes for the course

Become proficient in designing and transferring Mastercam files to a CNC machine and producing the designed part.  

This course is based on performance outcomes. The following performance outcomes are based upon established industry standards. The student will demonstrate knowledge and understanding through the following activities:

  • Using the advanced concepts in MasterCam, the student will design a part and produce it on a CNC machine  

Course Activities and Design

MCH 277 - MASTERCAM CNC/CAM PROJECT will be presented by means of audio-visual presentations, demonstrations, lab experiences, and research activities. The course activities and design emphasize the development of skills and knowledge outcomes prescribed by established industry standards. The identified outcomes will be achieved by means of individual and team activities.

Outcome Assessment Strategies

POLICY - Student performance measurements are based on established industry standards. The various areas of study during the course will be evaluated by a variety of activities. Typical of those activities are the following;

1. READING ASSIGNMENTS - Information sheets, textbooks, journal articles and the learning resource center are potential sources of information that the student will reference as directed in the modules identified in the introduction. 

2. PRACTICE - Completion of tasks and projects identified in the reading assignments, information sheets, journal articles and textbooks. Students are required to complete practice activities with 100% competency.

3. SELF-ASSESSMENT - Checking and evaluating the students understanding and knowledge gained through the reading assignments and practices typically done through a practice evaluation.

4. LAB ACTIVITIES - Participation in structured laboratory exercises with the emphasis on developing skills or increasing expertise in the areas of study identified in the module packets.

5. FINAL ASSESSMENT - An assessment in the form of a written exam and/or practical application that addresses the subject areas identified in the module packets. Students are required to complete final assessment activities with 85% competency.
