Precision Manufacturing & Machining Technology
Precision Manufacturing & Machining Technology is an instructional program that prepares individuals to shape metal parts on machines such as lathes, grinders, drill presses, and milling machines. Included is instruction in making computations related to work dimensions, testing, feeds, and speeds of machines; using precision measuring instruments such as layout tools, micrometers, and gauges; machining and heat-treating various metals; and laying out machine parts. Also included is instruction in the operation and maintenance of computer equipment. All graduating students will take a career readiness exam - CRC (Career Readiness Certificate). Students can earn a bronze, silver, gold or platinum (CRC) credential. All two year graduating students will earn a level one M3 credential. These credentials are in addition to the certificate and/or the associate of applied science degree that the students receive.
