Day/Evening program

At the heart of our mechanized world is the Precision Manufacturing industry requiring skilled technicians to carry out new ideas and plans in the production of all types of manufactured parts. Many of these skilled technicians can earn more than $50,000 a year.

Precision Manufacturing students receive applied training in basic concepts of machine tool processes during the first year.

In the second year, students will receive training in such specialized areas as production machining and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programming, setup and operation.

Employment opportunities include CNC specialists, mold makers, technical support technicians, field service representatives, and general machinists.

For students looking to pursue an education beyond the Associate Degree, this program may transfer to selected Bachelor Degree programs.

In addition to the general admission requirements, applicants should be aware of the following criteria:

  1. A minimum of high school Algebra I is recommended.

  2. Good skills in written English are required.

  3. Other high school courses such as physics and computer programming are recommended.

  4. It is recommended that senior students purchase a basic machinist tool kit.
