The machine shop technologist makes and modifies metal parts. Students at CLC learn how to use machines to make various parts for the repair, design, or manufacture of other products. Most jobs are in manufacturing settings, in a variety of industries, including aerospace, medical, and paper, to name a few. In this field, you use math, computer, and engineering skills, yet you also use your creative side to solve problems and make new designs. You work with your hands to create, put together, and fix tools and machines. You work on parts that are cast, formed, shaped, or molded. You can also work on parts that are heat treated, cut, or twisted. In addition, you can work on parts that are pressed, fused, stamped, or worked.
