INTRODUCTION TO MACHINE TECHNOLOGY (HC6445)
GRADES 9, 10 (1 CREDIT)
Academy: Industrial & Engineering Technology
Pathway: Manufacturing
This hands-on class introduces the basic theories and concepts used in the machining field. Students will learn basic concepts of both manual and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machining. Students will work on both manual and CNC vertical machining center and lathe. While learning the machines, students will also get to experience basic three dimensional solid modeling. The software and techniques taught in this class are used in every type of field around the world. Topics include shop safety, overview of machining center, feeds and speeds, cutting tool materials, planning the part, tool selection, basic machining principles. Students will make basic projects that incorporate several different areas of machining. This course is for the student that is considering a career in manufacturing or engineering.


+COMPUTER AIDED DRAFTING FOR MACHINING (CAD) (Dual Credit) (HC6457)
GRADES 10, 11, 12 (1 CREDIT)
Academy: Industrial & Engineering Technology
Pathway: Manufacturing
Prerequisite: LTCC application and instructor approval.
Create real pictures of real objects on your computer. This course studies a three dimensional solid modeling program common in many industries today. Three-Dimensional programs are used in industries such as, automobile, aerospace, household appliance, medical equipment, fire apparatus, and many others. The course emphasizes mechanical design principles using the CAD system, as well as basic engineering. the student will design their own projects as well as projects for others. This course is for the student that is interested in the engineering field as it will introduce some basic concepts involving problem solving and critical thinking. Math, science and communication skills are encouraged. Dual Credit through Missouri State University/West Plains TEC 111.


COMPUTER AIDED MANUFACTURING (CAM) (Dual Credit) (HC6452)
GRADES 11, 12 (1 CREDIT)
Academy: Industrial & Engineering Technology
Pathway: Manufacturing
Prerequisite: Successful completion of CAD for Machining
This course includes 3-D part design, but a larger part of this class will be on the integration of these designs and the control of CNC machines. Topics include 3-D design, blueprints, part planning, cutter selection, feeds and speeds. Dual Credit through Missouri State University/West Plains TEC 165.


+=COMPUTER NUMERICAL CONTROL I (CNC I) (Dual Credit) (HC6441)                                                               
GRADES 10, 11, 12 (2 CREDIT )

Academy: Industrial & Engineering Technology                                                                                                    Pathway: Manufacturing                                                                                                                                      Prerequisite: LTCC application and instructor approval.

This hands-on class introduces the pre-engineering or machining student to the practical use of engineering design. Students will work on a CNC vertical machining center and a CNC lathe. Topics include shop safety, overview of machining center, feeds and speeds, cutting tool materials, planning the part, tool selection, basic milling principles, tooling offset, canned cycles, set up, cutting fluids, and an overview of programming fundamentals (G and M codes). Dual Credit through Missouri State University/West Plains TEC 165.


+=COMPUTER NUMERICAL CONTROL II (CNC II) (Dual Credit) (HC6443)
GRADES 11, 12 (2 CREDIT)
Academy: Industrial & Engineering Technology
Pathway: Manufacturing
Prerequisite: Successful completion of (CNC I) Computer Numerical Control I. LTCC application and instructor approval.
This hands-on course gives students a chance to further explore the use of CNC machines to create more advanced parts. The training will include Shop safety, fixture design and building, the use of carbide tooling, and multiple set-up parts. Dual Credit through Missouri State University/West Plains TEC 111.


EXPLORING TRADES (HC6407)
GRADE 10 (½ CREDIT)
Academy: Industrial & Engineering Technology
Pathway: Introductory course to various Pathways
This course is designed to give sophomores the opportunity to explore several of the trade and industry classes that are available in Lebanon Technology and Career Center. Students will do career exploration, learn about SkillsUSA, power tools and hand tools. Then students will get to spend a total of about 3 weeks in each of the program areas learning what each is all about. The program areas being studied are Automotive Technology, Collision Refinishing & Repair, Construction Technology, Machine Technology, and Welding Technology.
