CNC Precision Technology
The Diploma in CNC Precision Technology (CPT) programme focuses on essential knowledge and skills in Computer Numerical Control (CNC) precision machining technologies and processes. Applications of CNC precision machining includes CNC milling 2 & 3 axis, CNC milling 5 axis, CNC turning and CNC grinding where the programme will cover the concept of CNC machining and machine setup. Computer software programmes such as CATIA and Powermill will be used to design parts and create programmes to run the CNC machines performing production runs and job set-ups in a manufacturing environment. The students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of fundamental manufacturing methods, industrial processes and safe use of equipment as well as determine common programming codes and program format. Students gain real-world experience using actual full-size CNC machines to perform real production runs and job set-ups in the technologically-advanced era. Upon completion of study, graduates will be able to apply the CNC precision machining processes for precision engineering production. This includes the application of suitable machining process, tool selection and parameters for CNC precision machining. Graduates are prepared for employment in both large manufacturing corporations and small precision machining companies such as automotive, aviation, military defence, aerospace and other types of advanced manufacturing facilities. Graduates can continue their education in industrial technology, engineering or business programs leading to jobs in management.
