This program prepares students for positions such as machinist apprentice, auxiliary services machinist, machine tool operator, and general machinist. Machinists use stationary, power-driven devices to shape or form engineered materials to precise measurements. This precision makes possible the production of thousands of identical parts which may be easily interchanged in the assembly or repair of final products. The machine tool program teaches students how to set up and operate the various types of machines common to industry.
