The two-year Machining Technologies program gives students the skills and hands-on experience to work in machine shops or manufacturing facilities. Students will learn to apply math, read blueprints, the properties of metals, and other practical skills. They will apply inspection techniques and machining processes and procedures in a modern shop equipped with lathes and vertical and horizontal Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines.
This program prepares students or incumbent workers for careers in industrial production and fabrication. Students learn the fundamentals of production tooling, fabrication, and additive manufacturing. Learning the characteristics of metals, and how engineering designs move from concept to reality. Students apply their skills in advanced metrology, fabrication and production in different manufacturing environments.
Students train on industry-standard modeling tools used by most manufacturing companies. They learn to create drawings, part and assembly models, mechanical design engineering theory and concepts, and how to use material information and mathematics to analyze mechanical designs.
