Overview

Are you attracted to modern manufacturing technologies and enjoy working with machines? This skills-based program prepares you for entry into the precision machining skilled trade or a related career in the manufacturing sector including apprenticeship through the study of computer integrated manufacturing applications. This program covers all the learning outcomes for Level 1 and Level 2 of the related apprenticeship program in Ontario.

A graduate of this program may not be required to complete the in-school apprenticeship training or take an exemption exam for Levels 1 and 2 should they choose to pursue a general machinist apprenticeship. As a student in the program, you have the opportunity to apply to the co-op stream in second term.

Applying to the Co-op Stream

The optional co-op stream includes two back-to-back co-op work terms. Due to the placement of co-op work terms, the academic semesters are fall/winter in year 1 and winter/spring in year 2.

Co-operative Education integrates academic studies with program-related experience in the workplace. This results in better-trained workers who are familiar with their professional expectations and have the skills needed to contribute to an organization right from the start.

The College cannot guarantee co-op employment. All co-op students are required to conduct an independent co-op job search in addition to the supports and services provided by the Department of Co-op Education.

Students will be informed of the application deadline and process to apply to the Co-op Stream. Labour market conditions determine the number of co-op seats in optional co-op programs. Every student who meets academic eligibility requirements may not be admitted to the co-op stream.

To be considered for admission to the co-op stream, students are required to achieve a minimum 65% session weighted average as well as successful completion of Precision Machining Theory I (MACH1940) and Precision Machining Practice I (MACH1955).

Career opportunities

A general machinist is a specialist who produces high-quality tooling and machined components for the precision machining/tooling industries. Graduates may hold positions such as an apprenticeship in general machining or related precision machining trade or other employment within the manufacturing sector.
