MT/CNC Technology

Program Description:

The MT/CNC program provides students the opportunity to prepare for entry level careers as machinists using conventional equipment and computer control equipment.

The graduate will have completed fundamentals required for all machining careers – industrial safety, blueprint reading and precision measurement.  Technical courses develop skills using conventional machines and using computerized manufacturing equipment.

Participants in the CNC Specialist program receive technical skills immediately useful in the workplace requiring CNC knowledge.  They receive hands-on instruction in set up, operation, programming, maintenance, etc. on state-of-the-market CNC equipment used every day in industry.  They also receive instruction in industrial communications, organizational skills, mathematics for machinists and safety.  Before graduation, each individual is required to pass all Level 1 NIMS CNC credentials.

The Associate Degree program requires four semesters.  However, the student may select to complete programs at the certificate level, two semesters, or at the skills set level.  The course work in these two training levels is an integral part of the degree program.

The program adheres to the standards of the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS)
