The Machine Tool Technology Program offers students the opportunity to experience the latest technology in the machine tool industry. Machine tool technology students receive training through hands-on experience that replicates operations used in industry. Metal parts are produced through the use of lathes, millers, surface grinders, Computerized Numerical Control (C.N.C.) machines, electrical discharge machines, and heat-treating.
Graduates can gain employment as manufacturing technicians, inspectors, machinists, tool and die makers, and computerized numerically controlled programmers. For those students wishing to go on to higher education, opportunities include mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, industrial engineering, and vocational teaching opportunities.
We want you to join the Diman family. While we're proud of our vocational programs and their ability to turn young men and women into skilled members of the community, we can't maintain that level of quality without the help of industry professionals. Please consider joining our Vocational Advisory Board, where you will help steer our vocational programs and students toward future success. Learn more and apply here.
