A Machining Technology Diploma from Pitt Community College’s Computer Integrated Machining program can quickly lead graduates into a high-demand, well-paying industrial and manufacturing career, now benefiting from a boost in technological advancements.  These aren’t your grandpa’s industry jobs!

We’re like sculptors. We’re taking a raw product and removing material and adding features.

The Computer Integrated Machining program gives students highly technical, hands-on experience with metalworking, machining, and designing with computer software using Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machines and five-axis machinery.  Students will need to be design-oriented thinkers as they learn to craft metal into mechanical parts, build simple engines, and write program coding for CNC machines.  Instructor Calvin Mayo describes the program the best: “We’re like sculptors. We’re taking a raw product and removing material and adding features.”

Pitt Community College’s Computer Integrated Machining program also offers specialized certifications such as the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification and CNC certifications where current employees can skill up before re-entering the workforce.  The industrial career field is seeing resurgence in the need for a highly skilled workforce, making a degree in the field an excellent choice for job security and advancement.  It’s perfect for those who like to see a project from beginning to end and building a physical item from raw materials while also integrating computer technology.
