CNC program banner  ​​

The Future is Here​. Train for it.

Our world has been transformed by technology and the demands of a global economy. To meet the needs of worldwide trade industries, companies are relying on skillful operators in advanced technology and automation in the manufacturing sector. Highly trained machine operators are in demand to operate precision machinery, systems and processes.

Whether you are a current student or looking for a career change, the advanced technology industry has career opportunities waiting for you. 


What is CNC Manufacturing?
CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Machining uses computers to control tools, such as lathes, mills, routers and grinders. These machines are programmed to produce precise components used in a variety of products.

Programming can be done using CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/ Computer Aided Manufacturing) programs and are loaded into the CNC control. The control system gives direction to the automated CNC machine.​

Benefits of completing this program include:

  • Higher earning potential
  • Increase career opportunities across multiple industries
  • Blended classroom format, accelerated eight-week courses
  • Hands-on experience using state-of-the-art equipment
  • Get certified while completing your degree
