Precision Manufacturing & Machining Technology-Machinists | Tool and Die Makers

The first year of the course consists of hands-on operation of machine shop equipment and classroom theory covering such areas as safety, blueprint reading, lathe and milling machine operation, theory and operation of basic Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment, metallurgy and shop math. In the second year of study the student learns advanced operation of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment, CAD/CAM, and production methods along with the development of more advanced hands-on skills. Throughout the program, students will have the opportunity to acquire National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) credentials. EMCC also offers a one-year career certificate program in Precision Manufacturing and Machining.
