Precision Machining Technologies
This two-year program is designed to help students acquire and develop skills
necessary to work in the manufacturing industry. The course integrates theory
and practical applications in a fully equipped machine shop facility. Students
study machining processes and procedures, properties of metals, blueprint
reading, applied math, inspection techniques, computer-aided manufacturing utilizing MasterCAM software, and the
operation of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. The CNC equipment
includes vertical and horizontal machining centers as well as CNC lathes with
live tooling. When appropriate, students may be assigned to a cooperative
work station in industry.
To earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree, the student must complete all
requirements for the certificate program plus 20 credits of General
Education. Transfer credit from other institutions will be considered
upon validate of transcript and course work. Students holding a recent Certificate
of Completion from RTC should contact the Registrar for degree options.
This program articulates with Tech Prep programs through the South King County
