Die Design Certificate
Program Number: 97-617-1
School Year: 2013-2014
Campus: Classes may be offered at Fond du Lac or West Bend campuses.
Die designers utilize their creativity to develop die designs for production environments. They are typically detail oriented and have an interest in machines and mechanical processes.
This certificate is designed to develop the metal stamping die design skills of an individual who has completed the Mechanical Design Technology associate degree, has previous die set-up or manufacturing experience, or a background in a machining role. This would include journey person tool and die makers interested in moving into a design role in their field.
Representatives from business and industry have identified skills that are essential to success in manufacturing. Students will be expected to demonstrate the Critical Core Manufacturing Skills (CCMS) throughout all the manufacturing classes. These skills include: work cooperatively, work productively, listen effectively, demonstrate a positive attitude, maintain a safe work environment, demonstrate integrity, communicate clearly, follow directions, apply problem solving strategies, apply mathematical reasoning, think critically and adapt to change. Students are exposed to the concepts of lean manufacturing, as well as green sustainable technologies.
Graduates are prepared to immediately enter the industry as designers working on new die tooling projects. Employers are looking for individuals who have the strong skills and knowledge base provided by this certificate.
