The Machine Tool Technology Program at Central Lakes College uses a curriculum of technical industrial standards set forth by a strong industrial advisory board made up of industry leaders in multiple manufacturing career areas. It prepares students in the areas of geometric tolerancing, advanced CAD/CAM, and advanced CNC milling, turning, and electrical discharge machine (EDM) operations.
Instruction takes place in a well-equipped shop for a hands-on, practical experience with lathes and mills, computer-aided-drafting and design software, precision machinery, computerized equipment and training using wire and sink EDMs. The demand for highly skilled machinists grows with the increased use of technology in the industry and the need to replace retired workers.
