Department Chair


Mark McCollough
Instructor

Computer Aided Manufacturing Major #8271

The CAM Program is designed for students who have a strong interest in hands-on experience both in the classroom as well as in the industry.  Core courses ensure students with a knowledgeable foundation using Fresno City College CAM laboratory with forty-six seats of MasterCAM software and 14 Computer Numerical Control Machines. The CAM program teaches students a vast array of CNC Vertical Milling Centers, CNC Lathes and CNC’s with fourth and five axes. These software and machines give students the most experiences possible, and help develop skills for our local manufacturing workforce.
