Precision Machining Technology

PMT is a college-level, two-year, dual enrollment program offered by CCTC and John Tyler Community College (JTCC). Precision machinists set up and operate a variety of computer-controlled and manually-controlled machines used to turn, mill, drill, and grind metals and other materials into parts and tools. The parts, shaped and sized with precision, are assembled together to make planes, trains, automobiles, furniture, jewelry, cell phones and too many other manufactured products to list. The same machines are also used to make unique manufacturing machine tools and other specialized tools like medical and dental instruments.
