Machine Technology

Welcome to the Lake Washington Institute of Technology's Machine Technology program. In addition to the full-time programs, there are part-time classes for working students, and continuing education classes for incumbent workers. We have a great desire to help students be successful in their machining training. Flexible training times are offered.

Students will be well positioned to begin a career in the machine trades by gaining basic machining competencies through their work on projects along with a thorough grounding in shop theory, applied math, and a special emphasis on CAD/CAM programming and CNC machining.
