MACHINE TOOL TECHNOLOGIST (MTT)

MISSION: The mission of the machine tool technologist program is to prepare students for successful employment or advancement in the mechanic industry.

Computer control programmers and operators use computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines to cut and shape precision products, such as automobile parts, machine parts, and compressors. CNC machines include machining tools such as lathes, multiaxis spindles, milling machines, laser cutting, water jet cutting, and wire electrical discharge machines but the functions formerly performed by human operators are performed by a computer-control module. CNC machines cut away material from a solid block of metal, plastic, or glass known as the work piece to form a finished part. Although they may produce large quantities of one part, precision machinists often produce small batches or one-of-a-kind items.  They use their knowledge of the working properties of materials and their skill with machine tools to plan and carry out the operations needed to make products that meet precise specifications. This program consists of one short certificate.
