Come join our brand new program Computerized Manufacturing and Machining. In this program you will learn about CNC router machines, Plasma Cutters, 3D Printing, Manufacturing Engineering, Mills and Lathes. Work with your hands with wood and metal and design the new projects. This program is great for students who are interested in engineering and computer aided design. Take your work from the computer to the workbench and see it come to life from beginning to end!
An Entry Level Machinist demonstrates the ability to assist in the fabrication of steel, metal, and wood structures. Must be adept at performing basic machining functions and calculating dimensions as well as operating power equipment, grinders and other related tools. Must be proficient in reading and interpreting basic blueprints and following work procedure specifications (WPS).
This pathway provides the opportunity to blend Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses with Manufacturing courses to help students apply technical skills along with science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills to solve real-world problems. Manufacturing and Machining helps design and develop metal components for products for the pipeline, automotive, boiler making, ship building, aircraft and mobile home industry. To do the Manufacturing TRACK you must complete all programs courses and find a Work Based Learning Opportunity with an option to stay on after highschool classes are completed.
