About this Program

This area produces skilled craftspeople who make precision metal parts that are highly
specialized and not mass produced. Machinists produce parts from metal castings, forgings,
stampings, or from solid metal stock. They make parts to exact specifications by removing
excess metal with the aid of machine tools, numerically controlled machines, computer
assisted machinery, and precise measuring and gauging equipment. Career Opportunities
As the economy expands, so will the demand for manufactured goods that need machine
metal parts. Machine Tool Technology graduates are hired by industries that manufacture
automobiles, industrial machinery, military equipment, and other metal products. At many
places of employment, graduates can apply training received at the College towards the
completion of apprenticeship requirements.
