CURRICULAR GUIDE

Machinist Toolmaker
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0199  (Effective Fall 2000 - Summer 2005)

A machinist toolmaker is involved with the manufacture of machined components
relating to various kinds of industry.  There are no limits to the variety of
projects a machinist toolmaker may be involved with: making prototypes, tools
for production, engineering changes on parts, etc.  This work involves
critical thinking, decision making, math skills, and working cooperatively
with others.  Machinist toolmakers are capable of operating all the various
machine tools in a machine shop.  They also must be able to interpret
mechanical drawings, calculate mathematical data, and work with others to
solve the various problems related to projects going on in the shop at any
given time.  A machinist toolmaker may be employed in any manufacturing

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
and advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  For information on how to fulfill all general education
requirements, see page 23.
