Students in the Precision Machining program will spend considerable time in the study and actual operation of industrial equipment and tools. Students will develop skills used by tool and die making companies and production/manufacturing facilities. This includes emphasis on the set up and operation of computer numerical controlled (CNC) mills and lathes. Students will also be taught manual machining, basic welding and computer-aided design/computer-aided machining (CAD/CAM) software and its applications. A strong project, method-driven curriculum assures both theoretical and practical skill development. This program prepares students to enter the workforce fields of CNC, CAM, tool making, machine tool operating, fabrication, quality control, and production or manufacturing.
