Machine Tool Technology – Associate Degree

About the Program

Precision measurement is a very important part of any machining operation. Because tools and dies must meet strict specifications – precision to one ten-thousandth of an inch is common – the work of individuals in the machine tool field requires a high degree of patience and attention to detail. They must also be mechanically inclined, able to work independently and capable of doing work that requires concentration and physical effort.

“I love that it’s hands-on, I can see results right away and I’m not inside all of the time. My instructors have been great. They answer any questions you have and are willing to work with you. It’s been a great experience.”

— Cory Smith, Machine Tool Technology Class of 2019
