Machining Techniques

Machining Techniques (DVS)

5723 Diploma of Vocational Studies

Why simply play an instrument and keep time when you can write the music instead? Similarly, why simply operate machinery when you can create and design it? Choose a career in Machining Technics where students learn how to machine and fabricate varied types of parts and equipment from prosthetic limbs to airplanes, motorcycles and even electrical turbines.

The student will learn to read, produce, and work from simple and complicated blueprint drawings. They will also work on a variety of computer numerical control (CNC) and conventional machines along with hand tools.

Training includes:

  •  Use of 3D computer software
  •  Quality control
  •  Programming and use of numerically controlled machines
  •  Proper use and set up of tools

Employment opportunities:

  •  General Machinist
  •  CNC Machine Operator
  •  CNC Programmer
