Manufacturing Technology


Northark offers several courses designed to provide training in Manufacturing Technology.  

MT 1203 Manufacturing Processes IA (3) 2L, 4LL
This is the first semester of a two semester course covering the basic concepts of computer
assisted manufacturing. Instruction includes basic design in SolidWorks computer aided design
software, G and M code output using Gibbs Cam computer assisted machining software,  safety,
CNC lathe and mill setup and operation, and the use of measuring tools. Pre-/Co-requisite: CT
1021.

MT 1213 Manufacturing Processes IB (3) 2L, 4LL
This is the second semester of a two semester course covering the basic concepts of computer
assisted manufacturing. Instruction includes G and M code writing, blue print reading, geometric
tolerance, Haas control functions, and CNC lathe and mill operation. Pre-requisite: MT 1203;
pre-/co-requisite: CT 1021.

MT 1206 Manufacturing Processes I (6) 3L, 9LL
