Brian Warren, Program Coordinator/Instructor

The Precision Machining Engineering Technology Program is designed with three different levels of completion. In the one-year certificate program, students learn the basic skills required for machinists. The two-year certificate program is designed to teach basic skills as well as advanced manufacturing procedures in the area of Computer Numerical Control (CNC). The two-year Associate of Applied Science degree program is a continuation of advanced skills, as well as academic courses needed to complete an Associate of Applied Science degree.

Progression: To meet graduation requirements for this program, students must successfully complete the specified courses listed below with a “C” average (GPA of 2.00) or better. A grade of “C” or higher is required in each MST course to progress in the program.

Minimum admission requirements (in addition to general admission requirements):
