Advanced Manufacturing is a third year program in Vincennes University's Precision Manufacturing Technology department for students who want to excel in CAD/CAM and CNC programming and machining. This course of study will prepare students for a career as a CAD/CAM programmer and as a CNC engineer with advanced skills by providing an additional 800 hours of hands-on training. This facility is home to the Haas Technical Education Center (HTEC), which includes 13 full-size Haas CNC machining and turning centers. Other industrial partners include Mastercam, Kennametal, Charmilles, Erowa, Niagara, SGS, Sandvik, LMT-Fette, Surfcam, IPC, Air Turbine Technology, and many other manufacturers.
Students in the Injection Mold Tooling program have the opportunity to develop a solid background in machine shop practices, and to learn set-up and operations for all basic types of machine tools including computer-controlled machines.
Students in Machine Tool and Die builds a series of progressive dies that perform a variety of operations such as: blanking, trimming, lancing, shear forming, bending, drawing, and side-action piercing. Classroom discussions focus on the theory, terminology, and calculations related to metal stamping die construction.
Welding Technology is a comprehensive two-year A.S. or A.A.S. program (pending ICHE approval) designed to prepare the student for gainful employment in the welding field. Students are trained in OAW (Oxygen Acetylene Welding), SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding, GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding), and GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding). Plasma arc cutting, oxyacetylene cutting, air carbon arc gouging, and print reading are covered.
