Students will start their career in Machining Technology by building a strong foundation in machining by learning to use various tools, such as hand tools, manual machines and grinding tools. Students develop introductory skills in print reading. They are also taught how to use CAD CAM software, which enables students to create two-dimensional drawings and gain experience with computer-aided manufacturer software. Learning G&M Code for manual CNC (Computer Numerical Control) programming is a focus, as well as setup and operations of CNC equipment.
Work experience may be converted to college credit through credit-by-portfolio or credit-by-challenge.
