Students learn practical mathematics, precision measurement, and blueprint reading. Once they master the proper use and safe handling of basic machine trade hand tools, they study set-up and operation of band saws, drill presses, lathes, milling machines, and precision grinders. Work also covers heat-treating and use of optical comparators. Emphasis is placed on computer-controlled (CNC) operations. Graduates are qualified to enter apprenticeship programs or pursue studies leading to a degree in mechanical engineering.
