This program prepares students for manufacturing jobs where they will use advanced machine tool setups for the manufacture of non-production parts or prototype parts for industry. This program provides advanced skills in the use of tool room lathes, mills, precision grinders, and sophisticated measuring instruments. Students will learn machining operations through the production of parts, on modern conventional mills, lathes, and grinding equipment in WCC's extensive machine tool laboratory.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”

—F. Robertson
