CNC Machining Technology ATC

This program provides training that prepares students to set up and operate manufacturing equipment, handle inspection devices, analyze production problems, and move into supervision of manufacturing. Students obtain a strong background in machining, engineering graphics, computers (CAD/CAM/CNC), quality control/quality assurance, material handling and processing, and leadership skills. The program provides a balance between practical training in manufacturing processes and technical education in manufacturing analysis, planning, and control with supporting emphasis in communications, mathematics, science, and business. To prepare for entry into the program courses in metal or wood shop, mechanical drawing, English, mathematics, physics, and computers are strongly recommended. Activity in clubs or organizations which emphasize leadership skills is also recommended. There is an opportunity for students to work in industry for a specified time and receive college credit, or to convert work and life experience into college credit for this program. Those interested in such an opportunity are encouraged to contact their advisor for further details at the time of registration.

Entrance requirements for the CNC Machining Technology program include:

  • Compass scores of 68 or higher in English, 73 or higher in Reading, and 46 or higher in Math (Algebra), or qualify for MTHPT-137, ENGL-101, and COMM-101.

Enrollment priority will be given to students on the basis of student’s advising date.
