Become a skilled worker with Ivy Tech’s ‘Machine Tool Technology Program’

If you’re interested in building a career in modern manufacturing, Ivy Tech’s Machine Tool Technology Program may be just what you need to get started.

This hands-on program trains students in using manually operated machine tools and the latest in computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools, drill presses, lathes, and mills to cut and shape metal into precision parts, tools, specialty tooling molds, and forms.

The program also teaches transferrable skills such as teamwork, communication, problem-solving, and professionalism.

Greg Kuhn, the Department Chair, joined us Monday morning to share more about the program.

He explained that coursework is closely aligned with standards set forth by the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS), which means that employers have confidence in the readiness of graduates to work on day one.

Due to high demand, most machine tool students can find full-time employment long before graduation. Graduates from the program go on to earn positions such as CNC operator, CNC setup technician, CNC machinist, CNC programmer, tool & die maker, and field service technician.
