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 have an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher in order to earn a degree or certificate.

 

Gainful Employment Disclosure

The Department of Education passed an initiative designed to protect students from taking on unsustainable debt in order to pay for their education. The data is provided for students of WSCC so students can make an informed choice about a program and the potential for gainful employment of that program. For WSCC, these are programs that are less than an associate’s degree. Click here to view the Precision Machine Technology Gainful Employment information.
