Texas State Technical Coll., Waco.
This document is intended to help education and training institutions deliver the Machine Tool Advanced Skills Technology (MAST) curriculum to a variety of individuals and organizations. MAST consists of industry-specific skill standards and model curricula for 15 occupational specialty areas within the U.S. machine tool and metals-related industries. This volume provides the MAST standards and curriculum for the manufacturing engineering technician specialty area. (A manufacturing engineering technician is a person who uses special knowledge and skills to recommend and implement solutions for specific manufacturing applications.) This volume is organized in the following sections: (1) a profile of Texas State Technical College, the development center that produced these standards and curriculum; (2) a manufacturing engineering technician competency profile of job duties and tasks; (3) a manufacturing engineering technician duty, task, and subtask outline; (4) a course curriculum outline and course descriptions; (5) a technical workplace competencies and course crosswalk; and (6) a Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) proficiencies crosswalk. Individual syllabi for the following courses are provided: Machine Tool Practices I; Drafting Principles; Machine Tool Practices II; Application Software; Engineering Materials; Safety and Accident Prevention; Basic Fluid Power; Electrical Applications; Survey of Welding Processes and Applications; Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machine Programming; Statics; Manufacturing Processes; Introduction to Computer Drafting; Computer-Assisted Design/Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) I; Tool Design I; Strength of Materials; CAD/CAM II; Computer Integrated Manufacturing; Quality Assurance and Statistical Process Control; and Engineering Technology Project. Each course syllabus includes the following: course hours, course descriptions, prerequisites, required course materials, teaching and evaluation methods, lecture and laboratory outlines, course objectives for technical and SCANS competencies, and suggested references.
