Computerized (CNC) Precision Machining Technology
The precision skills of the tool and die maker are as important as ever in our manufacturing and service processes.
The Computerized (CNC) Precision Machining Technology program at Southeast Technical offers the training and education for a rewarding career in the field of precision manufacturing.
It is important to first learn the basic fundamentals of machining and then progressively build your skills. Our program has a strong emphasis on learning the basic skills in machining technology.
You will be instructed in the use of several different high-tech machines while learning blueprint reading, metallurgy, drawing, and the principles of die and mold making. Our curriculum is based on the philosophy that hands-on is the best way to learn machining and die making.
