Precision Machine Technology
In the Precision Machine Technology program a student will learn what it takes to turn a bar of steel into a bicycle, boat, truck, automobile, medical tools or many other types of parts. Skilled metal workers called machinists have to cut and grind these parts to precise measurements. Demand for both men and women is extremely high. This fascinating industry magically transforms a designer’s dreams into a finished product and is America’s lifeline now and in the future.
A student will learn how to operate: lathes, milling machines, surface and cylindrical grinders, computer numerical controls (CNC), and other machines equipped with up to date technology. A student will also learn blueprint reading, geometric dimensioning and precision inspection techniques. He/she will learn how to write and program setup and running of CNC lathes and milling machines and computer control technology as a CNC machinist or a maintenance or automotive machinist.
