Machine Tool Technology – Associate Degree

About the Program

Precision measurement is a very important part of any machining operation. 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. They must also be mechanically inclined, able to work independently and capable of doing work that requires concentration and physical effort.

“It's very hand-on work, which I like. To be able to take a raw piece of stock metal and turn it into a part that can run an engine or an airplane, it's a great feeling.”

— Daniel Morrell, Machine Tool Technology Class of 2020 | Machinist at Phoenix Specialty Manufacturing Company
