A machinist is to metal work and machines as a carpenter/cabinet maker is to wooden products. Machinists are the “how it’s made” people. From the plastic parts in your cell phone to the tires on your car, machinists have made the moulds and dies for manufacturing these items. Everything made of steel, aluminum and plastic is made directly from a machine/manufacturing plant. The Machine Shop program provides a solid foundation in basic machining skills. When you graduate, you’ll be ready for work in custom machine shops, computer machine tool operation firms and large and small shops making parts and repairs. Trade time and academic credit may be available for grads who find employment in the trade and register as apprentices.
