|Program Guide||Gainful Employment|
Machinists are an integral part of the manufacturing process, and with an Associate’s of Applied Sciences in Machine Tool Technology from Salina Tech, you can keep it that way.
The technology of machining has changed significantly over the past decade, and as a result, professionals throughout the industry must be able to operate a wide range of highly advanced equipment. Utilizing lasers, water jets, and electrified wires to cut and mold different types of metals, plastics and woods, these new machines are often used to produce highly customized components. Machinists plan and carry out the operations needed to make such products by following specifications laid out by drafters, architects and engineers.
