Machine Technology
Manufacturing is the backbone of the modern workforce and would not be possible without machinists who use lathes, mills and CNC machines to create the components of products we use today.  Everything from refrigerators to microwaves,  and cars to airplanes were built by machinists.  Students in the DCCTC Machine Tool Technology class set up and operate a wide variety of machine tools and develop a thorough understanding of the working properties of metals such as steel, iron, aluminum and brass.
