MTT3561 MACHINING I COURSE PROCEDURE


MTT3561 MACHINING I

3 Credit Hours

Student Level:

This course is open to students on the college level in either the freshman or sophomore year and to area high school vocational students.

Catalog Description:

MTT 3561 - Machining I (3 hrs.)

Fundamental machine shop instruction involving safety, use and care of hand and measuring tools, basic lathe operations, and single point tool grinding. Screw threads and their application, classes of fits, and tolerances are stressed.

Course Classification:

Lab

Prerequisites:

INR3718 OSHA 10

Controlling Purpose:

Students will learn to conduct job hazard analysis for conventional mills and lathes, develop math skills for machine tool operations, perform preventive maintenance and housekeeping on conventional mills and lathes, select work holding devices for mills, lathes and other machine tools, calculate feeds and speeds, remove material using milling and turning processes, align milling head, use a vertical mill to center drill, drill and ream holes, change tools and tool holders on milling machines, and maintain saws and grinders.

Learner Outcomes:

  1. Operate machine tool equipment commonly found in industry including manual and computer controlled lathes, milling machines, drill presses and cutting machines.
  2. Manufacture parts from various materials in accordance with specifications from blueprints, electronic drawings and shop sketches.
  3. Solve quality problems using process planning, technical knowledge, teamwork, mathematics, and critical thinking.
  4. Apply safety principles in a work environment to minimize hazards and prevent losses to productivity.
  5. Demonstrate employability skills needed to obtain and retain employment in machine tool and related fields.
  6. Use CAD and CAM programs to design parts and program manufacturing machines.

Projects Required:

Refer to Syllabus

Textbook:

Contact Bookstore for current textbook.

Attendance Policy:

Students should adhere to the attendance policy outlined by the instructor in the course syllabus.

Grading Policy:

The grading policy will be outlined by the instructor in the course syllabus.

Maximum class size:

Based on classroom occupancy.

Course Time Frame:

The U.S. Department of Education, Higher Learning Commission and the Kansas Board of Regents define credit hour and have specific regulations that the college must follow when developing, teaching and assessing the educational aspects of the college.  A credit hour is an amount of work represented in intended learning outcomes and verified by evidence of student achievement that is an institutionally-established equivalency that reasonably approximates not less than one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out-of-class student work for approximately fifteen weeks for one semester hour of credit or an equivalent amount of work over a different amount of time.  The number of semester hours of credit allowed for each distance education or blended hybrid courses shall be assigned by the college based on the amount of time needed to achieve the same course outcomes in a purely face-to-face format.
