Machining Technology

Intro

The Machining Technology program trains students to use machine tools to produce complex parts, from the machines to the parts they use to produce their products in every industry. Machinists are trained to use various turning, milling, grinding, and computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines to produce these complex parts. Machinists are tasked to interpret engineer drawings to process the desired part. The Machining Technology program is structured to give students a solid foundation in the core fundamentals of machining and launch their careers in a field that is always in high demand.

Objectives

  • Demonstrate safe operation of machine shop equipment

  • Perform calculations common to the machining industry
  • Use appropriate measuring equipment
  • Use cutting tool geometry and theory in the machining process
  • Select appropriate equipment and cutting tools
