Associate of Applied Science, Certificate

Precision Machining Technology

Grenada

Precision Machining Technology program provides students with advanced skills that are important to the local industrial and manufacturing community, preparing them for a wide range of highly-technical careers. A precision machinist works very much like a sculptor, starting out with a large amount of material and eventually removing material to create something of great value. This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree or a Technical Certificate.
