Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines manufacture precision parts and products. They often complete many set-ups for short runs to meet just-in-time delivery demands. People who enter this field must be flexible and have basic knowledge of machine tool CNC.
Students program, edit, set up and operate CNC lathes and mills, as well as study quality control methods known as statistical process control. They also learn special quality control equipment, such as coordinate measuring machines, and advanced automated production methods.
This diploma is eligible for state and federal financial aid.

CNC Machining Technology Tool Requirements
Students in the CNC Machining Technology program are required to have a tool set for lab activities. During the first or second week of classes, a tool vendor will offer products to students at a considerable discount off the list prices. Instructors provide students with a list of minimum tool requirements. The cost of tools is estimated to be around $2,500 and payment plans are arranged directly with manufacturers.
