CIP Code: 48.0501

Instructor: Mr. Bennett


The disciplines of machining and welding are taught to students with good eye-hand coordination, strong math skills, and the ability to concentrate, stay focused, and take pride in producing a quality, usable product. Students learn how to perform bench-work, layout, read drawings, material science, heat treat, and use hand tools, measuring tools, manual and CNC machinery. Students are also taught skills in Arc (SMAW) Tig (GTAW) and Mig (SMAW) welding along with oxy acetylene torch use. Upon entering the Precision Machining Technology program, students start with theory-based learning and simple hand tool projects and then work their way up to milling, turning, grinding, CNC, and fabrication projects.
