Precision Machining Technology

The Precision Machining Technology program enables students to develop skills in setting up and operating conventional machine tools to produce precision parts and develop the required skills in preparation for CNC (Computer Numerical Control) programming, setup and operation.  Students will develop additional skills in process planning, blueprint reading, CAD/CAM, measurement and inspection, and custom work-holding design, leading to NIMS (National Institute of Metalworking Skills) Level I and II Credentials.

The Precision Machining Technology program at NMCC is Maine’s first and only HAAS TechnicalPrecision Education Center.  The college’s collaborative relationship with HAAS Automation, Inc. affords students access to state-of-the-art machine tools to support training in both entry-level and advanced machining processes.

Students have consistently had the opportunity to be employed as interns in the summer for several manufacturing facilities.  Job opportunities for graduates include machine tool operators, precision machinists, tool and die makers, CNC operators/programmers, and quality control inspectors.

The Precision Machining Technology Program is accredited by the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS).
