What can you do with a Machining Technology degree or certificate?


Machinists set up and operate a variety of machine tools to produce precision parts and instruments. Tools include lathes, milling machines, shapers, or grinders. Machinists also fabricate and modify parts to make or repair machine tools or maintain industrial machines, applying knowledge of mechanics, mathematics, metal properties, layout, and machining procedures.
