CIP 48.0501

Machine Tool Technology is a three-year PDE Approved Program of Study (SOAR) designed to prepare individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills in all aspects of shaping metal parts. Instruction involves making computations relating to work dimensions, tooling and feeds, and speeds of machining.  Emphasis is placed upon bench work and the operation of lathes, power saws, milling machines, grinders, drills, and computer operated equipment (CNC).  Instruction also includes the use of precision measuring instruments such as layout tools, micrometers and gauges; methods of machining and heat treatment of various metals; blueprint reading; and layout of machine parts.  Instruction prepares students to operate all types of hand and computer controlled machines.  High school students are strongly encouraged to take math courses, especially trigonometry, and if available, courses in blueprint reading, metalworking, and drafting.
