Precision Machining Technology
Prepare for a well-paying job in the technical field of precision machining. In our state-of-the-art Gene Haas technology lab, students learn to operate a variety of conventional machine tools, computer numerical control (CNC) machines, read and analyze engineering drawings, use precision measuring and inspection instruments, and utilize Mastercam software to program CNC equipment.
Students have the option of completing an associate in applied science degree, or a one-year certificate.
The Precision Machining Technology Certificate introduces students to a variety of entry-level precision machining concepts and methods. Through in-classroom and hands-on training in our state-of-the-art technology lab, students learn skills needed to enter the machining industry as an entry-level operator. Individuals in the certificate program have the option of transferring into the Precision Machining Associate in Applied Science Program.
Individuals in this Precision Machining Associate in Applied Science program have the option of transferring into the Precision Machining Technology Advanced Certificate program, allowing them further access to higher-level employment in the industry.
