Machine Tool Diploma (DAS.MTT)
The Machine Tool Diploma program is designed to prepare students for entry-level careers working in modern machining manufacturing environments. Students are trained to make precision components using CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) and conventional machining equipment.
The Machine Tool program prepares students with hands on theory and practice in machining applications. The Training involves blueprint reading, precision measurement and gaging, manual and CNC machining, CNC programming and operations, CAD/CAM applications, heat treatment processes, and CMM (coordinate measuring machines) programming and operation. Students in the Machine Tool program can also earn an Associate’s degree with a concentration in Machine Tool Technology. This degree allows students to specialize in additional industrial related areas such as Tool and Die Making. The machine tool field is in high demand nationwide with many career opportunities in advanced manufacturing. The Machine Tool Technology program at York Technical College has a history of high job placement rates for its graduates. The program is NIMS (National institute of Metalworking Skills) accredited. The NIMS accreditation allows students to earn certification in machining skills with national industry recognized credentials.
The Machine Tool Diploma program is designed to prepare students for careers working in modern manufacturing environments where intricate precision is achieved using computer controlled equipment as well as conventional equipment.
