Pierce College offers a Certificate of Achievement and an A.S. degree in Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Programming. Refer to the college catalog for course requirements for these programs.
We offer courses in manual machining (IND TEK 130, 230, 330, 332); CNC (IND TEK 140, 244, 248, 444, 448); CAM (IND TEK 346); and GD&T (IND TEK 105). Many machining/CNC students also take courses in Engineering Design & Technology, Electronics, and Welding.
Industrial Technology 130 - Beginning machine shop. Come explore the world of machine tools, the history of machining and get hands on machining your very own parts. This class is designed for the beginner, no experience necessary. This is a foundational building block for any person who wants to be a engineer.
Industrial Technology 230 - Intermediate machine shop. We take your experience from IT230 and give you more. More turning, more milling and a more complex part to machine. This class is designed to push your comfort zone from basic machining to the next level.
Industrial Technology 330 & 332 - Advanced machine shop. Many students create their own projects in the advanced classes. Many machine parts for a project they are working on at home. The advanced student usually will be asked to be on the WESTEC or AERO DEF teams to machine a part for a college competition. Many students do both, create their own parts and the help with the competition.
