We are so excited to offer these courses on our campus here in Mount Sterling, stated Rebecca Morton, Montgomery campus director. Many of our local employers have been asking for this program as they are in need of skilled machinists.

Machinists use machine tools such as lathes, drill presses, and milling machines to produce precision metal parts that are used for just about anything you can think of. They use their knowledge of the working properties of metals such as steel, cast iron, aluminum and brass, and their skill with machine tools to plan and carry out operations needed to make machined products that meet precise specifications.

The Computerized Manufacturing and Machining associate in applied science is a two-year degree. Students will take their first year at the Montgomery campus and their second year at the Rowan campus in Morehead. We have offered the Computerized Manufacturing and Machining program for many years here in Morehead, stated Program Coordinator Kenny Barrett. Bringing students to the Rowan campus their second year will maximize their experience by allowing them to work on state of the art equipment in our established labs.

Space in the program is limited and fall registration is now open. For more information visit our web site or contact Rebecca Morton at (859) 499-6282, ext. 66501.
