This is a year-long two block course in the AM session at SRTC. The class is designed to introduce students to safely and accurately set up and operate lathes, milling machines, saws, drilling machines and grinders. Students learn to use a variety of precision measuring tools and interpret drawings as they progress through a series of projects in the lab. Upon completion of this course, students should have an understanding of the demands of the precision metal trades.
The second year of this course covers metallurgy, geometric tolerances, cutting tool materials, and specialty machining. Students use their prior knowledge, to strengthen their skills as precision machinists. Project requirements are more demanding. Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling and lathe, surface and cylindrical grinding are used to complete the second year of the course. Successful completion of the course will enable graduates to fill full-time entry level positions in the precision manufacturing trades. Students may qualify for an enhanced Articulation agreement with some community colleges.
If you are looking for a rewarding career in the field of manufacturing, you owe it to yourself to check out what is going on in the Precision Manufacturing Program. Perhaps your siblings, parents or grandparents were in Precision Manufacturing.
