  • Objectives
    This program will prepare students for the Tool and Die Machining industry with emphasis being placed on hands-on training. Students will acquire basic skills on conventional and computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines. Blueprint reading, metallurgy and metrology are all integral parts of this program.
  • Practical experience
    The Skills Technology Institute (SkyTech) sponsors qualified Co-op Apprenticeship students to work as apprentices on a cooperative work term following their first and second academic years. This co-op placement is optional. Students will be selected based on an application process, which review past academic achievements. Please note that students on appropriate co-op placements receive credit for all in-school apprenticeship training.

  • Course description
    Semester 1
    # ENG1581   -   001   -   Communication Fundamentals:Ind. Stu.

    The students will develop independent learning skills and review the fundamental conventions of Standard English.

    # TEM1001   -   002   -   Trade Calculations I

    The students will develop fundamental calculating techniques relative to the machining trade. Students will interpret drawings, perform dimension and common length calculations in fractions, conversion of lengths and diameters to a decimal value, direct measure, vernier protractors, shop rpm and feed formulas, as well as gear manufacturing formulas.

    # TEM1004   -   002   -   Mechanical Drawings

    The students will learn how to interpret various drawings. these will include basic alphabet of lines, drawings, and hand sketches to CAD-generated drawings. Focusing on the generic rules, basic applications, and interpretations of specifications, the student will explore the impact of those factors on drawing sizes and tolerances.

    # TEM1005   -   010   -   Workshop Technology I

    The students will acquire hands-on experience on various machine tools such as lathes, mills, and drills. Students will fabricate specified machine parts through such basic operations as turning, milling, threading, knurling, parting off, and drilling and incorporating these skills into a knowledge base of tool and die machining.

    # TEM1010   -   004   -   Machining Practices I

    The students will understand the use of basic precision tools and gauges, machine shop safety standards, and personal safety attire, and safe operating procedures. At the same time, students will apply this understanding to relevant machine shop tools and equipment, particularly related to the tool and die industry.

    # TEM1100   -   002   -   Basic Numerical Control Application

    Students will develop an understanding of the broad spectrum of IT usage, including the history and application to the various aspects of their personal lives. In accordance with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities' general education requirements, this course provides an understanding between the development and use of technology.

    Semester 2
    # ENG1580   -   002   -   Applied Communication I

    Prerequisite: ENG 1581 Students will practice the fundamentals of career-related applications of basic communications skills.

    # TEM1103   -   010   -   Workshop Technology II

    Building on the skills developed in TEM 1005 the students will continue to use conventional machinery to acquire hands-on experience with a variety of procedures and to machine more advanced pieces reflective of parts manufactured in the tool and die field. Through performing and troubleshooting, students will complete selected tool and die machining projects on C.N.C. trainers.

    # TEM1104   -   002   -   Trade Calculations II

    Prerequisite: TEM 1001 Building on the skills developed in TEM 1001, students will apply geometric principles in the shop, including basic trigonometry and calibration techniques.

    # TEM1108   -   002   -   Programming/Operations I

    Sorry - no current subject description

    # TEM1200   -   002   -   Machining Practices II

    Prerequisite: TEM 1010 Building on the skills developed in TEM 1010, the students will acquire additional knowledge of conventional machine tools and their applications. Students will apply more advanced machining skills and challenges, including destructive and non-destructive metal testing, carbide tooling, and ferrous metals.

    # TEM1210   -   002   -   Mechanical Drawings II

    Building on the skills developed in TEM 1004, the students will interpret more advanced drawings, including complicated multiple view drawings and CAD-generated drawings. As well, students will calculate geometric tolerances and allowances, with a focus on applications and interpretations in tool and die machining.
