Computer controlled machines create the vast majority of consumer products, from cars and boats, to toothbrushes and electronic devices. Examples of sophisticated computer controlled machines utilized in computerized manufacturing include Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Mills and Lathes, Robots, Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM), 3D Printers, and Laser Machines, among others. The demand for programmers and operators of Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) and robotic equipment is strong today and is expected to grow.
Since 1993 BIR has offered instruction in CNC machining and part programming, CMM precision inspection and measurement, Computer Aided Drafting (CAD)/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Robot Automation, and more. Computerized Manufacturing and Robotics Programs provide attractive career opportunities for both women and men. The opportunities to learn CNC, CMM, CAD/CAM, and Robotics are closer than you think.
