Machine Tool Technology
Precision measurement is a very important part of any machining operation. And because tools and dies must meet strict specifications — precision to one ten-thousandth of an inch is common — the work of individuals in the machine tool field requires a high degree of patience and attention to detail. It is also essential that these professionals be mechanically inclined, able to work independently, and are capable of doing work that requires concentration and physical effort.
"I like how advanced students are mixed in with beginner students and everyone takes turns assisting someone else. So once you’ve learned a concept, you can coach someone else. It keeps the training shifting, and you know that you’ve really grasped what’s going on in class."
