  • Learn the craft of machining and how to create precision parts.
  • Build projects using mills, lathes and other precision machining equipment.
  • Design parts and program computer numerical control (CNC) machines to make them.

Machinists use machine tools that are either conventionally controlled or computer numerically controlled, such as lathes, milling machines, and grinders, to produce precision metal parts. Although they may produce large quantities of one part, precision machinists often produce small batches or one-of-a-kind items. The parts that machinists make range from simple bolts of steel or brass to titanium bone screws for orthopedic implants. Hydraulic parts, anti-lock brakes, and automobile pistons are other widely known products that machinists make.

Students will learn the essentials of machining including shop mathematics, blueprint reading, machine tool operation and selection emphasizing safety in the learning process. The program prepares students for a smooth transition into the manufacturing industry work-force and/or to upgrade skills for career advancement. The Machine Tool Program stresses hands-on individualized instruction, through project construction and classroom work. Students will also learn the essentials of setting up, operating and programming Computer Numerically Controlled Machine tools emphasizing safety in the learning process. Students will also learn the essentials of Computer Aided Manufacturing Software. The program prepares students for a smooth transition into the manufacturing industry work-force and/or to upgrade skills for career advancement. The CNC program stresses hands-on individualized instruction, through project construction and classroom work.
