Understanding how to produce precision metal parts, instruments, and tools is a skill that continues to be needed in a wide variety of industries. Working from prints or sketches, machine manufacturing technicians will set up tools needed to produce large quantities of one part, or possibly, one-of-a-kind precision items. Employment of machinists or too and die makers is expected to grow at a 6% rate. The average earnings in Maryland is $22.63 per hour for trained machinists.
Workers in this field work around machines and tools that can present some hazards. They will be required to work wearing protective equipment including safety glasses, masks, and ear plugs. Attention to detail and proper preparation are important. Schedules can vary from regular, daytime work hours, to work evening and weekends because some facilities operate around the clock.
This program prepares the students to be entry-level manual machinists. Learn to use conventional lathes and milling machines as well as grinders and other equipment commonly found in manufacturing facilities. Explore manufacturing theory and practical skills as well as blueprint reading. The program lab includes many brands of machining equipment so you will become comfortable using a variety of controls and displays.
