Machinist Technology


The Machinist Technology program is geared to provide the beginning machinist with the abilities, skills and techniques for entry-level positions in the field of machine trades. Students will be exposed to a combination of classroom theory and “hands-on” projects that will enable them to quickly develop the skills needed in the machine trades field. 


Take Control of your Future

The Machinist Technology program starts students out with the basics of machining: operating manual machines the “old school” method. Students train with manual lathes, mills, and drill presses while completing a variety of projects shaping metal. Students learn about geometric tolerancing, mechanical principles, and how to read blueprints.

The second half of the program gets into new technology and CNC machine operation. Students learn 3-dimensional design and learn line-by-line CNC programming. Students refine their skills on each machine by completing challenging projects, creating useful tools and parts in an on-the-job atmosphere.
