Diploma option available. See advisor for information.

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machinists manufacture precision parts and products. They often complete many set-ups for short runs to meet just-in-time delivery demands. People who enter this field must be flexible and have basic knowledge of machine tool CNC.

Students program, edit, set up and operate CNC lathes and mills, as well as study quality control methods known as statistical process control. They also learn special quality control equipment, such as coordinate measuring machines, and advanced automated production methods.

Students can transfer credits from this program to UNI and work toward a B.A. in Technology Management.

Career opportunities: machinist, mold builder, salesperson, job shop technician, CNC programmer/operator, quality control technician, tool and die maker.
