Sample Courses

Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing
Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) graphically defines limits of size, form, orientation, profile, location, and runout applications to ASME Y14.5-2009. GD&T standards include universal symbols and terms, position tolerancing verification, datum reference frame theory, datum (size) modifiers, datum targets, metrology and functional gage design application using a coordinate measuring open setup. Measurement of floating and fixed fasteners is applied to actual mechanical parts. GD&T will also be applied to welding fabrication drawings and assemblies.

Intro to Precision Measurement
This course teaches students the use of precision measurement tools including rules, tapes, calipers, micrometers, and gages. Students will apply measurement methods for reverse engineering to reverse engineer parts and to take field measurements on the shop floor. The course will enable students to communicate with machinists and other manufacturing specialists concerning precision measurements.

Manufacturing & Quality Assurance
Develops an overview knowledge of quality assurance to provide instruction in methods for measuring quality within manufacturing processes. Students learn the components of a quality assurance program such as quality goals, benchmarks, leadership, and motivation. This course addresses the philosophies of leaders in the field, industry trends, quality standards (ISO and Six Sigma) and how quality assurance relates to specialties in manufacturing, food, biotechnology, micro/nano electronics, service, and pharmaceuticals.
