Precision Machine Tech - Non-NIMS



Precision Machine Technologies

Associate of Applied Arts & Sciences

The ability to operate Computer Numerically Controlled machinery efficiently, while producing quality parts, are skills that are in demand today in many advanced manufacturing environments. This program concentrates on developing the student’s knowledge and skills to 1) accurately measure dimensions with high-precision devices; 2) read and understand blueprints and technical drawings; 3) to understand concepts of design; 4) to operate saws, drills, grinders, manual mills & lathes, and to program and operate CNC mills and lathes to produce precision parts.

 

The WSCC Precision Machine Technology Program is available in an Open-Entry/Open-Exit (OE/OE) format allowing for enrollment at any time throughout the year. Employers have great flexibility in building training programs by ala carte selection of modules from a menu of skill sets. Students have an increased ability to work while earning a college degree since the hours of delivery are modeled to fit work schedules, including both online and hands-on training.
