Machinist program

Machinists produce precision parts, tools, and instruments utilizing both manual and computerized machining systems. For more than sixty years, the machinist program has prepared studentsfor apprentice positions through local apprenticeship agencies.

Instruction contains extensive hands-on experience in the use of traditional precision tooling and machining equipment, as well as sophisticated, state-of-the-art technology, including CNC lathes, CNC milling machines, and program-specific software.

The program also provides extended-learning opportunities for persons previously or currently employed in related professions.
