The Tool & Diemaking program prepares students to meet the demands for qualified personnel in either the conventionally controlled or computer numerical-controlled (CNC) tooling industry.
There are two separate diploma options available: Machinist Technology and Diemaking.
1st Year: Machinist Technology graduates should have the skills required to work in a general machine shop.
2nd Year: Diemaking graduates should have the skills necessary to work as tool planners, tool makers, die makers, etc. By completing the core courses required for all students plus the courses in the two diploma options, students may receive a Tool & Diemaking AAS degree.
