Machine Tool Technology (Certificate)

Study machine tool technology at JCC

The Machine Tool Technology certificate at Jamestown Community College provides foundation skills in machine tools. You’ll be able to enter the workforce immediately after graduation as an entry-level manual machinist or CNC employee. The certificate also ladders directly into the A.A.S. degree in Mechanical Technology with a concentration in machine tools.

JCC’s courses build and strengthen your machine tool theory and use, as well as skills in machinist-specific math and writing. You’ll become proficient in the operation of machine tools such as lathes, milling machines, grinders, drill presses, and precision measurement equipment. You’ll also take courses in solid modeling and CNC programming, two specific areas that are important for an overall understanding of the field.

2019 median pay for machinists and tool and die makers: $45,750/year according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
