MTT3568 MACHINE TOOL PROCESSES COURSE PROCEDURE


MTT3568 MACHINE TOOL PROCESSES

1 Credit Hour

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 3568 - Machine Tool Processes (1 hr.)

A lecture course which provides experience in the setup operation of milling machines, grinders, lathes, drill presses and an understanding of the heat-treatment of steel.

Course Classification:

Lecture

Prerequisites:

INR3718 OSHA 10

Controlling Purpose:

Students learn to conduct a job hazard analysis for a machine tool group, analyze blueprints to layout parts and materials, select hand tools and common machine shop mechanical hardware for specific applications, prescribe cutting tools for assigned operations, calculate stock size to minimize drop, machine parts to specifications outlined in machine handbooks, summarize preparations for machining operations, and apply precautions to minimize hazards for work with lathes, mills, drills, 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.

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.
