The Machining Technology, AAS degree is the final set of instruction in the machining technology program. The Machining Technology, AAS degree contains all the skills, training and knowledge gained in the stackable machining certificates (Manual, CNC 1 and CNC 2) which includes material properties, blueprint reading, precision measuring tool use, precision layout and set up, machine shop mathematics, the safe operation of manual and CNC lathes, mills and drills, (CNC) programming and operational skills to successfully program operate and manufacture multi axis parts. The remaining course work required for the AAS after earning the previous machining certificates is 4 courses (3 academic and 1 machining).
