Students in Monty Tech's Machine Technology program learn a variety of skills by studying blueprints and drawings, and by applying math and science to operate engine lathes, milling machines, grinders, drill presses, EDM (Electrical Discharge Machine) and CNC machines (Computer Numerical Control). Our students learn Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Machining (CAM) software, enabling them to expertly create machine tools with more precise dimensions and material consistency. The Monty Tech Machine Technology program recently benefitted from a generous Skills Capital grant, providing funding for updated equipment, tools, and a new Metrology Lab. As a result, students now work and learn in a state-of-the-art machine shop, and may earn a number of industry-recognized credentials to demonstrate their technical capacity.
After graduation students may seek employment in any of the following career pathways:
- Machine Operator
- CNC Programmer
- Tool and Die Maker
