Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon

The Machine Manufacturing Technology program has been developed specifically in a modular self-paced format, allowing each 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). Students can complete a course in a matter of days or weeks. Current MMT students are given priority enrollment. New students are required to meet with a program advisor to help plan a course of study that will allow them to achieve their educational goals. Permission from the MMT department is required to register. For more information, call 971-722-4155.
