Precision Manufacturing Technology
Precision Manufacturing Technology (Precision Machining) is a program that teaches the basics of manual and computer machining of metal products. Students will concentrate on the basics of precision manual machine operations, machine shop safety, machining processes, blueprint reading, inspection techniques, applied math in the shop, and the materials used in the precision machining industry During the first year, most of the lab projects are assigned by the instructor to build common skills expected by machine tool employers and post-secondary schools who train both machinists and engineers. Shop safety and safety around power machines is emphasized throughout the course. Students who desire National Certifications in machining can go through National Institute of Metalworking Skills courses.
