The Machine Tool program covers all aspects of machining from shop safety, blueprint reading and basic hand tools (micrometers, calipers, etc.) to the operation of precision Computer Numeric Controls (CNC) machines. While training, students have the opportunity to develop their skills on lathes, vertical milling machines, and surface grinders.
Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machining skills, covered in the last semester, includes programming and set-up of both CNC machining centers and turning centers. To be successful machine tool students must possess good math skills and the ability to follow detailed instructions. Full-time day and evening classes are offered on the main campus.
