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.
