About Innovative Manufacturing Technology

The Innovative Manufacturing Technology program teaches you how to create a wide variety of precision working parts by using different machines and hand tools to shape metals. 

Students in Innovative Manufacturing Technology will develop the following skills:
– competent, safe and precise use of common machine shop equipment and tools  
– effective use of 3D-Printers
– programming of Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) Machines 

Who Should Enroll? 
Innovative Manufacturing Technology is looking for students who like fast-paced environments, working as part of a team, and designing their own projects.  Students in this vocation are active participants in their learning, creative, and logical thinkers. 

Employment Opportunities 
Students who successfully complete Innovative Manufacturing Technology will enter the workforce as a level 2 apprentice machinist, CNC operator, or machine shop helper. Competency in machining technology is a great skill for those interested in pursuing careers in engineering. 

Additional Information 
Curious about how things are made? Do you imagine objects that don’t exist yet?  Problem solving and methodical thinking are two important components of the machinists’ craft. Students in this program develop their ability to imagine the steps necessary to move objects from the idea to production stage.
