Machine Made: Tools to Succeed
No machine tech orientations until after winter term begins. Monday orientations will resume in January. The program is full with a waitlist.
Machine manufacturing has evolved quickly and substantially in the last few decades. Since the 1950s, computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines have helped the industry achieve greater consistency and standardization. Now, a half-century later, machine operators use computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software to control, manipulate and manage precision tool production. Machine manufacturing and tool dies have become increasingly valuable, especially in the production of high-precision tools for high-tech manufacturing and large industrial construction. With such dramatic advancements over time, it pays to have a solid foundation in the art and mathematical science of machine manufacturing.
That’s exactly what you’ll get at PCC. In our machine manufacturing program, we provide the skills you need to begin a career with the fundamental machining skills and concepts proven over time. Our program provides an opportunity to learn with self-paced, modular courses that provide you with necessary fundamental skills, helping you keep pace with the industry and advance your career.

Flexible Courses, Fitting Needs
The Machine Manufacturing Technology (MMT) program has been developed specifically in a modular self-paced format, allowing the student to attend courses on a schedule they choose (days or evenings). The program is designed to fit the needs of the student (take one or more modules as you desire); self-paced (learn at your own speed); flexible (select your own attendance schedule, days or evenings); and individualized (a course of study can be tailor-made to fit specific needs).
Existing MMT students are given priority enrollment until the final day of the previous term. New students will be admitted after that time until a predetermined enrollment count is reached. Consult a program advisor through the department to help plan a course of study that will allow you to achieve your educational goals.
Information Sessions for the Machine Manufacturing Technology program are held every Monday at 1:00pm in AM building, room 202 at Sylvania campus. This is your first step in applying for the program. No pre-registration required. Purchase a parking pass as you enter the campus. There is a waitlist so planning ahead is important.
