Computer Aided Manufacturing

CERT1

Why study Computer Aided Manufacturing?

Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is the technology used to prepare programs to be executed on Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment. CNC machines are the industrial equipment used to produce components used in manufacturing. CAM is the bridge between CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CNC machines.  CAM operators import 3D models, establish machining parameters, generate tool-paths, and produce final CNC programs used to machine components in industrial settings. CAM operators are highly sought after within the manufacturing industry.

The UC Clermont CAM certificate program is designed to provide students with prerequisite knowledge required for entering a career in Computer Aided Manufacturing, CNC programming, and machining. Topics covered in this certificate program include machining, 3D modeling, G&M code language, CNC milling, CNC turning, machine setup, as well as tooling and material considerations. Students will utilize CAM software and full size CNC industrial equipment to gain this knowledge.

Admission Requirements

This program is open to all students with a high school diploma or GED and the desire to succeed in college. Although admission is open, students accepted into the program must meet the academic standards of the program to advance to upper levels of study.

We recommend a basic understanding of drafting. You will also find mechanical experience and blueprint reading helpful.

Academic advising is an essential part of your educational experience.

We are committed to providing advice and assistance throughout your academic journey. You and your advisor work together to create an academic plan based on your goals.

The UC Clermont campus is on 92 wooded acres located in Batavia, Ohio, in the heart of Clermont County. We are relatively small and our faculty-to-student ratio is low. Class sizes are small and personal interaction with instructors is common, creating an ideal learning environment. Parking is convenient and at no additional charge and our tuition is the lowest of the UC colleges.

UC Clermont students have access to free tutoring and academic support services through a collaboration with UC’s Learning Commons. The Learning Commons provides centralized academic support for all University of Cincinnati students by bringing together faculty, best-practices in teaching and learning, and hundreds of outstanding peer educators to create flexible academic success programming. Free services available to UC Clermont students through Learning Commons include academic coaching, success skills workshops, and tutoring in writing, math, science and more.

Academic Writing Center (AWC) - The AWC can help with any writing assignment for any course and at any stage of the writing process. The AWC is not course-specific and can help with discipline-specific documents, as well as non-course-based writing. Schedule a one-on-one appointment with a trained writing tutor or submit your paper through email for feedback.

Math & Science Support Center (MASS) - The MASS Center offers virtual study tables for many undergraduate mathematics and science courses. Study tables provide a collaborative learning space so that students can learn from their peers who have excelled (the table leader) as well as their fellow class members attending the study table. No appointment is necessary for these scheduled group tutoring sessions.

Peer Tutoring - Peer tutoring sessions are one-on-one with a subject-specific tutor to answer questions in more than 300 undergraduate courses including subjects such as math, science, languages, business and writing. Schedule appointments up to 7 days in advance for one-hour, 90-minute or two-hour session. If you notice your desired course is not offered, please let us know.

Academic Coaching – Academic coaches help students get organized and learn to be efficient and effective with their study time during one-on-one sessions. Academic Coaches will work with you on new strategies or exercises to try before the next meeting and later meetings allow tailoring new approaches to develop the best study and test taking habits for your unique goals and strengths. Schedule one-hour sessions as often as once per week.

Success Skills Workshops – Success Skills Workshops are free one-hour sessions that focus on skills students need to be successful in college (study skills, note-taking, motivation, etc.). While there is no shortcut to success, the goal of the workshops is to empower students to identify and apply academic habits and soft skills through a deeper understanding and purpose of them. When you RSVP for a workshop, you will be able to register for the upcoming workshops one at a time and up to nine days prior to the workshop date.

Developmental math and English course tutoring services – UC Clermont provides free tutoring services for students enrolled in Preparatory Composition (ENGL 0099), Mathematical Literacy (MATH 0029), Fundamentals of Algebra (MATH 0030), Introductory Algebra (MATH 0031) and Intermediate Algebra (MATH 0034). Information about these services is provided in the course syllabi.

You must complete an application for degree the semester before you expect to graduate. You should see your advisor in the Advising Center for assistance.

Other UC students may transfer into UC Clermont College by completing the application for change in college and program form. You are urged to see your advisor before transferring into a different major to minimize any impact on your degree progress and to verify that you have met all pre-requisites.
