    AUTOMATED MANUFACTURING LEVEL I: TWO PERIODS/FOUR CREDITS
    TI1004/TI005
    PREREQUISITE: Algebra I (or currently enrolled in Algebra I). 11th Grade Only. Fall Semester: Students will receive instruction in the use of state-of-the-art Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing (CAD/ CAM) software (MasterCam) to design projects using mechanical engineering principles. Projects will then be manufactured using specialized computer-numeric controlled (CNC) machines. The class incorporates elements of design and measurement in addition to machine operation enabling the student to complete assigned and personal projects.
     
    Students will be required to furnish supplies for personal projects. Students are required to have their own clear safety glasses and
    will be responsible for the cost of any consumables used during the completion of personal projects. An annual $25.00 lab fee is
    required. Membership and participation in Skills USA or FFA, professional-technical student organizations, is strongly
    encouraged. Tech-Prep college credit is available.
     
    Spring Semester: Students will build on the fundamentals taught in the level one course by learning the operation of additional equipment and through designing more complicated projects. Projects such as a school ring will then be manufactured using CNC machines. The class incorporates the fundamentals of mechanisms, robotics, materials handling, pneumatics, hydraulics, sensors, electronics, and specialized
    welding.
     
    Students are required to have their own clear safety glasses and will be responsible for the cost of any consumables used during the completion of personal projects. An annual $25.00 lab fee is required.

    AUTOMATED MANUFACTURING LEVEL III: YEAR. TWO PERIODS/TWO
    TI1006
    CREDITS. PREREQUISITE: Automated Manufacturing Technology I & II. 12th grade only.
    Students will receive advanced instruction in CAD/CAM and CNC operations. Commercial projects will be designed, manufactured, and
    marketed to simulate real-world engineering, manufacturing and distribution. Industry internships will be available to all second year students.
