The Machining program prepares students to practice the trade of machinist.
The program of study aims to develop the skills necessary to perform trade-related tasks and train individuals capable of interpreting blueprints and solving mathematical problems related to machining with machine tools, manual and automatic programming, and machining simple and complex parts of mass production. They must manufacture, modify, repair, or maintain precision parts using machine tools and equipment that require different work methods.
Machinists set up and operate a variety of conventional machine tools (such as milling machines, lathes, boring machines, grinders, drills) and numerical control machine tools (such as numerical control lathes, machining centres), in addition to programming the latter. They also perform quality control of products with measuring instruments as well as related activities before, during and after machining operations. Machined parts may be unique or mass-produced, simple or complex. Machinists work in the manufacturing of metal products, polymer products and other materials, transportation equipment, machinery, aerospace products and parts.
