Machine Tool Technology (Precision Machining) is a two class program that teaches the basics of manual and computer machining of metal products. Students will, at first, concentrate on the basics of precision manual machine operations to produce close-fitting items that work together. This will be achieved by learning about machine safety, machining processes, blueprint reading, inspection technique, applied math and materials used in the precision machining industry. In addition, students will learn advanced manual machine processes and be introduced to Computer Aided Drafting and Machining (CAD/CAM) and the setup and operation of highly advanced Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. Concepts are taught primarily through hands-on activities and computer application software, but classroom instruction will be used when applicable.

The advanced class of Machine Tool Technology places the emphasis on CAD/CAM application where students will create a self-designed product that showcases all of the skills learned throughout both levels of the course.
