Considered by many as a step toward a fast-paced engineering career, Machining focuses on set-up, programming, and operation of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) mills and lathes. Machinists work in all manufacturing sectors including, but not limited to energy, aerospace, defense, agriculture, automotive, transportation, medical device, prosthetic, engine manufacturer and many more. You can learn what you need to know for a high-paying job by completing the National Metal Working Skills curriculum at ASU Mid-South.
The Mid-South area has a growing number of jobs for machine operators, machinist technicians, programmers, and computer-aided designers, particularly in the medical device industry. We offer three Certificates of Proficiency in Machining, so you can decide how far you want to take your certification.
The Machining program teaches students how to operate both manual and CNC computer-aided lathes and mills, GD&T, NX, Solidworks, MasterCAM, 3D printing, CMM PC-DMIS, 3D sensing and provides students the ability to complete the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification. From interpreting fabrication blueprints to programming and operating the machine, we can teach you everything you need to know to succeed as a machinist technician.
*Accelerated CNC Machine Operator and Programming program: This intensive 15-week program will provide computer-based learning, CNC simulations, and hands-on CNC instruction. Start now and successful students will be able to earn National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certifications and have job opportunities positions such as, CNC Operator, Machinist, or Quality Technician jobs.
