Machines and equipment such as planes and cars would not work without precise parts. Many of these come out of machine shops using sophisticated manufacturing equipment. The two-year Machining Technologies program gives students the skills and hands-on experience to work in these kinds of machine shops or manufacturing facilities. Students will learn to apply math, read blueprints, the properties of metals, and other practical skills. They will apply inspection techniques and machining processes and procedures in a modern shop equipped with lathes and vertical and horizontal Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. When appropriate, students may be assigned off-site in a working machine shop. This program articulates with Tech Prep programs through the Puget Sound Dual Credit Career Consortium.
