What is Computerized Manufacturing and Machining?

If you like to work with your hands and have an eye for detail, you could become a great machinist. Machinists have a hand in creating the parts for cars, the equipment in doctors office, the shoes in your closet and just about anything else you can think of. OCTC's Computerized Manufacturing and Machining (CMM) program prepares students with courses in conventional machining and computer numerical control (CNC) machining. CMM students receive quality instruction and hands-on experience in OCTC's state-of-the-art Advanced Technology Center. Students build special skills including precision measurement and shop-related blueprint reading as they create their own projects.

What are my career choices?

Machine tool technicians make things happen. Employment opportunities are steadily increasing; almost every product manufactured requires the skills of a highly trained machine tool technician. You will find opportunities for employment in manufacturing plants, private machine shops and through self-employment.
