Machine Tool Technology

A student in a machine tool class

Machinists are highly skilled operators of machine tools that fabricate parts from a wide variety of materials. Working from blueprints, sketches, or their own designs, these technicians produce precision parts with extremely close tolerances. Graduates who want to work in the field usually have little difficulty finding employment, because there is high demand for good machinists.

The Machine Tool Technology program at Casper College provides students with the opportunity to learn skills necessary to work in the precision metalworking profession. Students learn basic machine tools such as band saws, drill presses, engine and CNC (Computer Numerical Control) lathes and horizontal grinders. At the same time, we emphasize safety and responsibility in the work place.

We will teach you how to set up and operate machines. You will learn to program and operate computer-numerically controlled (CNC) milling machines and lathes. We will cover the operation of precision measurement and test equipment used by metals manufacturing industries, and help you understand and identify the many different materials and processes used by industry.
