Study the operation of metal-working equipment. Develop skills from basic cutting to state-of-the-art computerized numerical machines (CNC).Previously known as Machine Tool, this program combines high-tech machines with hands on projects. Students are engaged with brainstorming, engineering,, machining and robotics. Work on Vertical Milling Machines and Engine Lathes, along with 3-axis Computer Numeric Controlled Milling and Lathe Machines. Build a foundation of manufacturing skills that will help you gain an engineering background or enter an apprenticeship. Also, learn skills in Master Computer Aided Machining software and programming. Through the Tooling University online curriculum, students can work toward National Institute Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification. College credit is also available to qualifying students.
