Program Description

This curriculum prepares students to seek employment as an intermediate entry-level machine operator. Emphasis is on intermediate skills: milling and lathe operations including long tapers, inside and outside radius, single point threading, counter bores, steps, knurling. Production drilling of multiple parts introduction to surface grinding including grinding multiple parts parallel in size. Intermediate inspection techniques. Note: Mach 220B-L requires enrollment in or completion of the preceding course in this sequence.

An Occupational Skills Certificate is awarded upon completion with a grade of C or better.

Program Outcomes
