Dual Credit – Ivy Tech– MTTC101- MTTC110
Advanced PMT is recommended for students who have successfully completed PMTII and are intending to pursue a 2-year machining degree, 4 year mechanical engineering degree, or enter the work force under the educational principals and guidance of an apprenticeship program. This course is offered by the Industrial Technology Department at CPHS for students looking to pursue a career in the machining or mechanical engineering field. An articulation agreement is in place with Ivy Tech that allows students (11, 12 only) to earn dual credit (MTTC101- MTTC110). Students looking to get a head start on their college/career are highly encouraged to take this course at CPHS. In this course we will review the many basic principals in machine manufacturing that were learned in PMT II and begin exploring new more complex scenarios and processes. Students will gain more experience operating various pieces of machinery, using basic hand tools, use of precision measurement tools, and machinery maintenance. We will embrace a strong focus on shop mathematics (including right angle trigonometry), blueprint reading, and related machine information and concepts. Students will engage in machine processes on assigned projects and have opportunity to create their own projects that will hone their previous skills, introduce them to new more challenging processes, and foster more in depth problem solving capabilities and analytical thinking. Instructional strategies include classroom theory, use of computers, and job shadowing experiences. There will also be job placement opportunities after graduation. .Students opting for the dual credit option must apply to Ivy Tech and the tuition is free. Student grades will be reflected on both the CPHS transcript and Ivy Tech transcript.
