If you like to work with your hands and have an eye for detail, you could become a great machinist. Machinists have a hand in creating the parts for cars, the equipment in doctor’s office, the shoes in your closet and just about anything else you can think of. OCTC’s Computerized Manufacturing and Machining (CMM) program prepares students with courses in conventional machining and computer numerical control (CNC) machining. CMM students receive quality instruction and hands-on experience in OCTC’s state-of-the-art Advanced Technology Center. Students build special skills including precision measurement and shop-related blueprint reading as they create their own projects.
For course sequence, see the program card.
For graduation requirements, see the academic plan.
This program has no special admission requirements.
You can earn an associate of applied science degree in two years if you maintain full-time status.
Graduates of the CMM program may work in many settings – machine shops, municipalities or industry. Skilled machinists are in high demand. See where some of our graduates Go2Work at www.owensboro.kctcs.edu/gradsGo2Work.
