The ability to operate computer numerically controlled (CNC) machinery efficiently, while producing quality parts, is a skill in demand in today’s manufacturing environments. WSCC’s program concentrates on developing students’ knowledge and skills in four ways: 1) measure dimensions accurately with high‐precision devices, 2) read and understand blueprints and technical drawings, 3) understand concepts of design, and 4) operate saws, drills, grinders, manual mills and lathes, and program and operate CNC mills and lathes to produce precision parts.

Students must earn a minimum of 60 credit hours and have an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher in order to earn a degree. Students must also take any required third‐party exams, especially in the AAAS concentrations, such as NOCTI, NCLEX, MTA, and MOS.
