  • Objectives
    The Tool and Die Machining program will continue to prepare students for the machninist, mold maker, tool and die industry, and the computer numerical control (CNC) industrial sectors. The student will gain knowledge in design, manufacturing of jigs, fixtures, and dies for custom production, maintenance and troubleshooting of the equipment and tooling. The student will become familiar with the intricate set ups on shop equipment such as mills, lathes, surface grinders, cylindrical grinder, tool and cutter grinders, and EDM machines. The student will also gain a significant amount of skills in the operation, troubleshooting and program creation using computer numerical control (CNC) systems. All manufactured projects will conform to minimum industry standards by using highly accurate precision and accuracy.
  • Practical experience
    The Skills Technology Institute (SkyTech) sponsors qualified Co-op Apprenticeship students to work as apprentices on a cooperative work term following their first and second academic years. This co-op placement is optional. Students will be selected based on an application process, which review past academic achievements. Please note that students on appropriate co-op placements receive credit for all in-school apprenticeship training.
