CAD/CNC Certificate

This program is designed to provide Computer Aided Design skills (CAD) combined with the application of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programming and machining skills. Upon completing this program students will be prepared to work as a CNC programmer, CNC operator, CNC draftsman, CAD designer, or CAD programmer. This program is not designed for students wishing to transfer to a four-year college for a bachelor’s degree. Students planning to transfer should consult with an MCC counselor. This is intended to go directly into the workforce.
