Machine Tool Technology
Machinists use a variety of machinery and tools to shape raw materials into a finished product, often seeing it through from initial prototyping to the final result.
Precision machinists create the things that allow modern technologies to function. From automotive parts, to advanced robotics, to medical implants, to the space program, their work helps society function — and thanks to advancements in 3D modeling, 3D printing, and robotics, the industry is moving into areas previously thought impossible.
Being a machinist is a great fit for people who want to work in a high-demand industry with the latest technology, but also like to create and build things with their hands. The work is very challenging, technical, and satisfying, and at the end of the day, you can see the results of your skills and effort.
