Program Courses

These are a few of the courses you will take in the Manufacturing Quality program.

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.

Measurement for Engineering
This course will provide the theory, technique, and care of the coordinate measuring machine (CMM) and various measuring instruments. The student will apply blueprint reading skills and geometric tolerancing to projects while applying measuring techniques used with the CMM and basic measuring instruments. The student will be exposed to precision inspection methods as it relates to industrial blueprints, manufactured parts, and the student's projects.

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.
