Machine Tool Technology /Robotics

about 1 year ago


The Machine Tool Technology Program offers students the opportunity to experience the latest technology in the Machine Tool Industry. Our students receive extensive training through hands-on experience, which simulates operations used in the industry. Metal parts are produced through the use of lathes, milling machines, surface grinders, Computerized Numerical Control (C.N.C) Milling machines, and CNC Lathes. CTEi’s dual program with our CAD class offers our students the opportunity to learn the design stage of projects. Graduates can gain employment as machinists, tool and die makers, entry level, welders, inspectors and computer numerical control (CNC) programmers/ operators. For those students wishing to go to a higher education, opportunities include Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering and Industrial Engineering. CTEi’s articulation agreements with Quinsigamond Community College and New Hampshire Technical Institute help students transition to college with credits offered upon completion of the CTEi’s Machine Tool Technology Program and enrollment in a degree program at their institution.
