The machine tool technology program at Seward County Community College prepares students for employment within the tool-making/machining industry. Students in machine tool technology transform raw materials, like steels, aluminum, bronze, copper, composites and plastics, into working parts and assemblies.
This self-paced, performance-based curriculum lets you learn at optimum speed or slow down to a pace that is comfortable to you. You'll get your most valuable experience working "hands-on" with up to date equipment such as bench and hand tools and machine tools, including engine lathes, vertical mills, drill presses, grinders, and CNC (computer controlled machines).
Machine tool technology students get their training in the machine shop. Class projects and outside work provide a wide variety of skills and broaden the learning spectrum for each student.
Machine tool technology students at SCCC:
• Participate in course content based on industry advisory committee input.
• Receive job-readiness and placement assistance.
• Are encouraged to join student organizations.
• Benefit from open-entry and open-exit programs.
