Machinists produce precision metal parts, using machine tools such as lathes, drill presses, and milling machines. Machinists and tool programmers also set up and operate a wide variety of machine tools, using their knowledge of the working properties of metals and the information processed from blueprint reading.

Machinists plan and carry out the operations needed to make machined products that meet precise specifications. Students in the Machine Shop Technology Program will learn blueprint reading and precision measuring using tools such as micrometers, indicators, calipers, and others. Students will learn to manufacture, assemble, and repair metal parts.

The machines used to produce these metal parts are numerically controlled and most of those are computer numerically controlled (CNC). These machines are programmed by using G-code and M-code. G-code and M-code are taught thoroughly to give students knowledge of how the machines operate and perform each function. In addition to a certificate and associate degree, students in this program can earn certifications within the field of study such as precision measurement from NC3.
