Welcome to Computer Integrated Manufacturing!
Course Description: Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is a full-year STEM course which starts from the ground up by teaching microprocessors and programming. Students learn about logic and analogue inputs and control circuits. From this experience, the students model, design, test and fabricate a computer- controlled machine. CAD models of thee machine parts are used by MasterCam, a CAM software, used to generate numerical code that our CN outer needs to fabricate the parts. Many of the parts may be fabricated from CAD drawings utilizing out 3-D printer. The parts are used to construct the microprocessor-controlled project. This real life experience teaches teamwork, logical thinking and problem solving skills that are essential for the student interested in engineering.
Prerequisites: CAD and Technical Drawing or Design and Drawing for Production
Grade Requirement: 10, 11, 12
