Precision Machining

Precision Machine Technology introduces students to using machine tools such as lathes, mills and computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines to shape metal into precision parts. They use their knowledge of metals and their skill with the tools to manufacture products that meet precise specifications.  Precisions Machinists and Tool and Die Makers should have a great deal of patience and coordination. A strong math background is recommended. Students will learn to 
  • Invent, design, and manufacture the tools and components for a wide-range of production needs
  • Utilize advanced computer-controlled technology to create steel, aluminum, and plastic components
  • Use the same equipment and techniques as industry leaders
