Precision Machining Technology

Associate in Applied Science Degree

Certificate

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Precision Machining Technology program offers a two-year Associate in Applied Science degree and a one-year Certificate. The program is designed to prepare students for entry level positions in the machine tool industry. Students will be trained in the conventional areas (lathe, mills, drills and grinders), as well as in Computer Numerical Control (CNC). A working knowledge of the machinery’s handbook will provide graduates the knowledge to be contributors in any environment they work. They will also be introduced to metal fabrication, which will include welding and/or sheet metal. The full curriculum will include both technical and general courses necessary for students to successfully compete in the work environment.

A laptop computer is required.

 

PROGRAM MISSION

The Precision Machining Technology program is committed to providing the skills, knowledge, and understanding needed to obtain entry level employment in the metal-products industry.

The program provides communication skills and the ability to recognize the need for lifelong learning. Using high academic standards in a learning environment that is safe and supportive, the participant is expected to develop the necessary skills for a variety of occupations in the metal trades industry.

 

EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES

Upon successful completion of the Precision Machining Technology program, a graduate is expected to:

  1. Practice the skills needed to be successful in the metal working industry and to be safety conscious and accountable to himself/herself and the safety of others while expanding his/her knowledge in his/her chosen profession.
  2. Communicate clearly and effectively while responding appropriately to a variety of processes common to the precision machining industry.
  3. Be able to work with others and think as a team member to solve problems that could affect long-range outcomes of specific projects.

 

CRITERIA FOR GRADUATION

Students in the Precision Machining Technology program must complete 31 credits for a Certificate and 64 credits for an Associate Degree, achieve a minimum grade of "C" in all core courses (*), and attain a final GPA of 2.0 or higher.
