Manufacturing and Machining Technology

Students in this program focus on skilled manufacturing, machining and advanced manufacturing, and learn how products are taken from concept to consumer using the latest technology to compete in a global marketplace.
They learn computer-aided design (CAD), engineering drawing and sketching and a number of computer programs used in today’s highly technical manufacturing operations.

Students benefit from partnerships with such advanced manufacturers as Greno Industries Inc., GE Energy, Simmons Machine Tool, PVA and Atlas Copco, which offer opportunities for field trips, job shadowing and internships.

Developed in cooperation with local businesses and industries, colleges and professional associations, our Manufacturing & Machining Technology program working to meet our region’s growing demand for advanced manufacturing professionals.
