Lower apparel and safety equipment varies by program. The specific uniform requirements for Precision Machining Technology can be downloaded using this link.

Potential Career Opportunities

There are many career opportunities for students graduating from York Tech's Precision Machining Technology program.

What to Expect

Students interested in this program will take courses in Engineering & Advanced Manufacturing and Precision Machining Technology for the first three marking periods. After the third marking period, students will apply for full-time entrance into one of the two programs, and they will be accepted based on merit and other criteria. Students who are not approved for their first choice will be assigned to the other program included in the rotation.
