Welcome to Hutchinson Community College

Machine Technology - CERT A

This program prepares students for entry into machining careers. Machinists produce customized, precision components for machinery. Students learn to read blueprints, utilize precision measurement tools, and operate machine tools, including drilling machines, lathes, milling machines, saws, grinders, and computer-controlled machines.


Using lathes, milling machines and spindles, machinists make precision metal parts in machining shops or in manufacturing firms that produce durable goods, including metalworking and industrial machinery, aircraft, or motor vehicles. Computer-control programmers and operators use computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines to produce large quantities of product.


Hutchinson Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The Higher Learning Commission is one of six regional institutional accreditors recognized by the US Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
