Precision Manufacturing and Machining Technology is an instructional program that prepares individuals to manufacture metal parts on machines such as lathes, grinders, drill presses, milling machines, and Computer Numerical Control equipment. Included is instruction in making computations related to work dimensions, testing, feeds, and speeds of machines; using precision measuring instruments such as layout tools, micrometers, and gauges; machining and heat-treating various metals; and laying out machine parts. Also included is instruction in the operation and maintenance of computerized equipment.
Precision Manufacturing and Machining Technology is an articulated program designed to provide advanced and technical skills to its students. Entry into the post-secondary program is based upon mastery of Baseline Competencies which are taught in the secondary programs. Students who do not possess such skills must complete additional coursework in order to graduate from the program.
