TECHNICAL PROGRAMS

For-credit programs

Northland provides the following for-credit technical skills programs taught on site by SUNY Alfred State College and SUNY Erie Community College. Complete program descriptions are provided as downloadable PDFs.

WELDING TECHNOLOGY (AOS)
SUNY Alfred State College

The high-tech Welding Technology program focuses on welding processes performed in all positions on both plate and pipe. You will learn proper safety methods, required math, related skills, layout and fit up, welding codes and standards, welding inspection, testing, and drawing/welding symbol interpretation. The first year, students will complete AWS Level I standards for an entry level welder. The second year will take students toward AWS Levels II and III—advanced welder and expert welder. Additional techniques, such as high-pressure vessel, high-pressure pipe, and ship fitting will be taught, as well as other advanced welding techniques. The welding technology program is taught according to the standards set by the American Welders Society (AWS) and is AWS-certified.

ELECTRICAL CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE ELECTRICIAN (AOS)
SUNY Alfred State College

The Electrical Construction and Maintenance Electrician program provides in-depth instruction in the theories and principles of electricity. Principles of operation for electrical devices and equipment, and correct and safe operation of tools are covered. You will study and learn to interpret and apply the requirements of the National Electric Code for designing electrical layouts, installation methods, and the maintenance, troubleshooting and repair of electrical circuits and equipment. Practical (hands-on) application of the classroom theory is the main emphasis of the laboratory work. Approximately one-third of lab time is spent on actual work sites, gaining real-life work experience. In your senior year, you will create completely automated projects in the lab using PLCs, pneumatics, electronics, and process controls.

MACHINE TOOL TECHNOLOGY (AOS)
SUNY Alfred State College

The Machine Tool Technology program features instruction in the safe operation of all basic machine tools, such as lathes, milling machines, drill presses, various saws, and grinding equipment, as well as proper measurement and inspection of parts. Interpreting engineering drawings and mathematical calculations required by all machinists is also presented. The second year includes shop math and CNC (Computer Numerical Controls) programming with an emphasis on hands-on skills using advanced machine tools. A strong emphasis on shop safety is an integral part of the program. The AOS degree program includes operation of CNC lathes (turning centers), and CNC milling machines (machining centers, including setup and operation of the machines, and interpreting engineering drawings and control documents. The understanding of quality control and how to conduct appropriate measurements and inspection will be integrated into the course work.

MECHATRONICS
SUNY Erie Community College

The Mechatronics certificate program trains technicians in multi-craft skills and applies them within a manufacturing environment. Mechatronics is a new and emerging career that trains technicians with multi-craft skills and applies them within a manufacturing environment. Skills taught include electrical, mechanical, hydraulics, pneumatics, robotics, and computer technologies. Mechatronics technicians who support advanced manufacturing will usually assist the design, development and engineering staff, as well as work closely with others to install, maintain, modify and repair mechatronic systems, equipment and component parts. The goal of the Mechatronics certificate program at Erie Community College is to prepare students for employment as production technicians in manufacturing locations throughout the Buffalo-Niagara Region.

CNC PRECISION MACHINING
SUNY Erie Community College

The CNC Precision Machining certificate program is designed to prepare students for employment in the precision metal working industry with academic course work, hands-on skills and advanced manufacturing processes required by business. Upon completion of this program students will be able to enter or advance in such fields as mold making, model making, die making, machine repair and computer numerical control (CNC) machining. Students are prepared for employment in both large manufacturing corporations and small precision machining companies. Graduates can continue their education in industrial technology, engineering or business programs leading to jobs in management. The design of this program will enable a student to be qualified to do entry-level machining work after completing just two semesters.
