The mission of the Machine Tool Technology Program is to provide required technical instruction and skill development for the student to become gainfully employed. This course, which is accredited through the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS), will provide students with a thorough understanding of the methods of machining and fabrication of metal into tools and parts. Each unit of study is approached by starting with the basic theory involved. Students will receive actual experience with lathes, mills, grinders, and the CNC/CAM equipment, as well as, precision measuring instruments that work with it.
Students will receive a high degree of individual instruction and learn the use of tools, special equipment, blueprints, metallurgy, measurement, layout and advanced mathematics required. Written and performance tests are given to record your progress.
