Students with chess sets designed in advanced manufacturing
Students, L to R: George Molina (Central Islip), Alejandro Blanco (Bay Shore), Jake O’Leary (Port Washington), Jesse Villanova (Huntington), Anthony Moloche (Brentwood), Josef Kosic (Commack), Cameron Wigger (Ridge), Nicholas Zelazny (South Setauket), Ryan O’Shea (Hampton Bays), Steven Beder (Islip).

Suffolk County Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Center teaches students the required skills to enter our region’s high-skilled manufacturing workforce. Students in Suffolk’s programs learn an array of technologies including computerized machinery, computer software, 3D printers, and ability to design and develop products.

A core course, Advanced Machining Processes, encourages students to experiment to learn the content of the class.

The final project is a “Chess Set Project”. Each student designs a chess set by utilizing a CAD/CAM design software package. After completion of the designs the students use computer programs that enable them to manufacture those pieces on the CNC machines, and manufactures his/her own pieces.

“Suffolk County Community College is committed to the advanced manufacturing sector,” said college President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “The jobs are there,” he added, “and we are training people to fill them.” Manufacturers across the U.S. are finding it more and more difficult to attract and retain workers with the right skills to fill available jobs and keep up to speed on factory floors.

None of the students knew how to design, program, or manufacture any of the metal parts before joining Suffolk’s program.
