Career and Program Description

Machinists operate various types of material processing equipment such as lathes, drill presses, milling machines, grinders, computer numerical control (CNC) machines, rapid prototyping, and computer assisted machining (CAM) systems. Machinists may specialize in the operation of one type of machine or work in a shop where they are required to operate several different machines.

The Machine Manufacturing Technology (MMT) program has been developed specifically in a modular self-paced format, allowing the student to attend courses on a schedule they choose (day or evenings). The open exit design of the program allows a student to focus on a course and complete the materials in a matter of days or weeks instead of traditional term-long classroom formats. The program fits the needs of students in that it is designed to be self-paced (students learn at their own speed, taking as many or as few modules as they desire), individualized (courses tailored to students), flexible (students select their own attendance schedules), and open-exit (students complete courses whenever the work is done, and they may leave the program when they have met their training goals or needs).

Existing MMT students are given priority enrollment until the final day of the previous term. New students will be admitted after that time until a predetermined enrollment count is reached. Consult a program advisor through the department to help plan a course of study that will allow you to achieve your educational goals.
