Overview

Precision Machine Technology II is a more in-depth study of skills learned in Precision Machine Technology I, with a stronger focus in CNC setup, programming, and operation. Projects concentrate on precision set-up and inspection work as well as machine shop calculations. Students develop skills in advanced machining and measuring parts involving tighter tolerances and more complex geometry. The lab operates as a machine shop with client projects, and success students may participate in internships at local companies.

 

When You Finish

Students completing this program generally continue employment at the company where they completed their internships. They may also participate in apprenticeship programs through their employers to complete degree programs. Others continue their education at the postsecondary level in 2 and 4-year degree programs, begin their careers in local machining businesses, or join the military.
