In Westmoreland County, employment in the machining industry is increasing at a steady rate, creating a need for more trained machinists. In order to compete with foreign manufacturers, Westmoreland County shops are increasing the number of computer numerical controlled machines as well as other automated equipment. This has created a need for technicians, programmers and operators that is not being met at the present time.
This is the fourth of four certificate programs for students studying the computer numerical control of machining equipment. Students will continue their studies in software programming of CNC mills and lathes by using MasterCAM software.
