Program Description: Precision Machining is a highly skilled occupation in which raw material is machined and transformed into specialized industrial tooling.

Vincennes University offers the most comprehensive Precision Machining Technology program in Indiana, and is one of the few in the United States to offer specialized training in manual machining, CNC machining, metal stamping die, and plastic injection mold building.

With over 1,600 hours of hands on experience, students have the opportunity to develop a solid background in machine shop practices, as well as learn the set-up and operation for all basic types of manual and CNC machine tools. Classroom discussions focus on theory, terminology, and calculations.

The type and quality of equipment used in our labs include traditional machine tools as well as the latest in CNC equipment— identical to that found in industry. In addition, our faculty has an extensive background in education, teaching, and industry, to ensure that students receive instruction in both theory and practical applications.
