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


They plan and carry out the operations needed to make machined products that meet precise specifications. Students in the Machine Shop Technology Program manufacture, assemble, and repair metal parts, subassemblies, and complete machines. Increasingly the machines used to produce these metal parts are numerically controlled and most of those are computer numerically controlled (CNC). Students in this program are required to participate in 3rd party credentialing such as (NIMS) and (NOCTI) activities prior to graduation.
