The purpose of the two-year Machine Tool Technology curriculum is to prepare students for entry into machining occupations. Students participating in the program will spend considerable time in study and actual operation of industrial equipment and tools used by machinists. This includes emphasis on the setup and operation of CNC (computer numerical controlled) lathes and milling machines. Students will also be introduced to CAD/CAM (computer assisted design/computer assisted machining) software and its applications. The program is designed to offer a broad background of experiences in the metalworking occupations.

Students are expected to have a set of machinist tools. They are expected to maintain a minimum grade level of “C” on core curriculum classes to progress in the program.

Employment Opportunities
Many opportunities exist in the manufacturing industries for the machinist. Students completing the Machine Tool Technology program are prepared for entry into the manufacturing workforce leading to careers that provide support for industries such as:

• Forest products/paper/lumber
• Medical technologies
• Transportation and aerospace technologies
• Computer hardware technologies
• Heavy industrial manufacturing
• Hydraulic/pneumatic equipment manufacturing
• And many other manufacturing settings

Program Outcomes
At the completion of this program, students should be able to:

  • Demonstrate and/or describe safe work habits and environmental issues associated with modern manufacturing settings
  • Read, interpret and apply blueprints for the production and inspection of manufactured work pieces
  • Demonstrate the correct application and use of precision measuring equipment commonly found in a manufacturing setting
  • Plan and produce work pieces on a manual drill press to required blueprint specifications using common industry methods
  • Plan and produce work pieces on a manual engine lathe to required blueprint specifications using common industry methods
  • Plan and produce work pieces on a manual milling machine to required blueprint specifications using common industry methods
  • Demonstrate, explain and/or apply CNC/CAD/CAM machine tools and software to produce work pieces to required blueprint specifications

Admission is based on date of application and satisfactory completion of placement criteria. Application packets are available on our website at mhcc.edu/LRadmissions. Once you have read the application packet, if you have questions, please call 503-491-7256.

Entry into the Machine Tool Technology program is permissible fall, winter or spring terms based on individual qualifications and approval from program advisers.

1Students transferring to OIT, OSU or other schools offering a baccalaureate program must substitute with WR121. Students wanting to take WR121 may need to take WR115 as a prerequisite if indicated by their writing placement level.
2Minimal computer literacy required. See program adviser.
3 A College Placement Test (CPT) score does not fulfill this requirement. Students must successfully complete the required mathematics course (or higher.)
4 Instructor and dean permission is required; check with instructor for the correct course number and credits appropriate to the internship assignment.

‡See Associate of Applied Science Degree, page 22 of the printed catalog.

Note: Students interested in transferring to O.I.T. should consult with program advisers early in the first quarter.
