CNC / Machinist Technician
CNC machines have radically changed the manufacturing industry. Curves are as easy to cut as straight lines, complex 3-D structures are relatively easy to produce, and the number of steps that require human action have been considerably reduced.
In the CNC / Machinist Technician career training program you will get your hands on drill presses, mills, lathes, and grinders, then advance to CNC milling and CNC turning. You will learn to efficiently set up and run CNC machines. Be capable of controlling the 3 axes of lathes and mills through Computer Numerical Control programs. Problem solving skills, troubleshooting techniques and use of engineering materials and processes learned at EIT will enable you to take your place in tomorrow’s industry.
