Miami Valley Career Technology Center
Programs: Precision Machining Technology
Students in the Precision Machining Technology program make tools that they will use the rest of their lives. When the students leave MVCTC, they will have made enough tools, that if they were to buy them, they could have paid for their toolbox, often many times over. The junior year is spent learning the safety and operation of all the manual machines. They learn to operate many types of lathes, mills and grinders. The senior year, heavy emphasis is on learning new Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machinery as well as honing some of the skills learned the junior year. Seniors also learn solid modeling using SolidWorks, CAD/CAM using FeatureCAM and shop floor programming using ProtoTRAK's. Students are also given the opportunity to earn National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification and to compete in the Dayton Tooling and Manufacturing Association (DTMA) BOTSIQ competitions.
