Tri-County to Launch New Computer Numeric Control (CNC) Programming and Operations Degree Program

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                            6/25/2013

            PENDLETON --- Tri-County Technical College will a launch a new program this fall, the first in the state exclusively targeted to CNC programming and operations with an engineering graphics component.

            Called Computer Numeric Control (CNC) Programming and Operations, the degree program will replace the Machine Tool Technology (MTT) curriculum that has been in existence at the College for 50 years.

            "It's not just a name change," said Stan Compton, engineering technology department head in the College's Engineering and Technology Division. "To remain on the leading edge of computer numeric controlled manufacturing, our current MTT program has been replaced with a fresh new curriculum.  Our advisory committees have communicated to us a desire for the College to deliver graduates with a greater array of skills than the existing MTT program currently offers.  The degree will prepare persons to work as CNC programmers and operators with manufacturers requiring high production volumes or short-run batches of discrete parts.  In addition to writing CNC programs, students will learn CAD design and analysis applications, create precision set ups, select tooling and operate a variety of CNC milling and turning centers," he said.

            "We've combined parts of Engineering Graphics Technology (CAD analysis) with advanced CNC programming and machine operation, along with lean manufacturing classes, to make our graduates more marketable in today's workplace," he said. 

            Compton added that current MTT majors have the option to finish the MTT degree coursework or change their major to the new CNC Programming and Operations.

            For more information, contact Stan Compton at 646-1441 or scompton@tctc.edu.
