School of Sciences, Health, Engineering and Math, 505-428-1754

This degree provides students with an opportunity to acquire the skills necessary to enter the workplace as competent, entry-level machinists. Course work incorporates the theory and practice of machining and manufacturing from tooling operations, safety, layout and planning, and programming to engineering design methodology and process improvement. Computer applications are part of the program including computer-aided drawing/modeling and computer-aided manufacturing. Students use machining skills to solve basic design-related problems. The program provides foundational learning in regards to critical thinking and problem solving using engineering methods.

A nested certificate in Engineering Machining Technologies allows students to focus on developing technical skills.
