Machinists play a key role in product creation. With their expertise using tools like lathes, milling machines, and grinders, machinists create and produce essential metal parts. Your education as a machinist will prepare you to create such widely known products as hydraulic parts, anti-lock brakes, automobile pistons, and even orthopedic implants.  

In the Precision Machining program, you’ll learn important skills like shop mathematics, blueprint reading, and machine tool operation and selection. You will also learn the essentials of setting up, operating and programming Computer Numerically Controlled machines in a safe and efficient way. You  will also learn the essentials of Computer Aided Manufacturing Software to prepare you for a smooth transition into the manufacturing industry work-force and/or to upgrade your skills for career advancement.
