The machines used by industry continue to operate in a faster and more accurate manner, and require new operating skills and techniques.
Many of today’s machines are computer numerically controlled (CNC), and the machines are operated through the use of a program.

Students in the Machinist program at Lewis and Clark are instructed in the latest practices and have the opportunity to develop the skills employers need. You’ll learn to set up and operate a wide variety of machine tools and know the working properties of metals such as steel, cast iron, aluminum, and brass. Your training at L&C will help you plan and carry out the operations needed to make machined products that meet precise specifications.
