Virtual CNC

The CNC Machining and Tooling Technology program utilize a virtual training environment to give students more realistic one-on-one training with the machining equipment. Immerse2Learn's virtual 3D CNC machines and online course materials allow students to practice and gain confidence in their skills in a hands-on environment.

The virtual CNC machines mimic reality with realistic mills, lathes, and industrial control panels for widely used brands such as Haas. The student can edit, load, run, and save programs as well as set tools and work offsets just like on a real machine.
