Machining and Manufacturing with CNC
Great Opportunity Begins with CNC Programming
Great Opportunity Begins with CNC Programming
America is experiencing a welcome resurgence in domestic manufacturing, which is great news for both the American economy and consumer base. But manufacturers cannot find enough skilled workers to fill open positions, due to a nationwide shortage of skilled tradespeople. A decades-long over-emphasis on college versus the skilled trades has produced a massive shortage of trained individuals – a shortage that is now producing incredible opportunity for those with the right skills.
The manufacturing industry supports 12.2 million jobs within the American economy1. The United States produces some of the world’s finest high-technology equipment, all of which contain parts created on CNC machine tools. Examples include airliners, surgical instruments, robotic and computer parts, medical implants as well as parts used in educational applications. CNC manufacturing is the answer to the Manufacturing skills gap.
Deloitte Study Shows Major Shortage of Skilled American Manufacturing Technicians
According to a May 2021 study produced by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute, the manufacturing skills gap in the U.S. could result in 2.1 million unfilled jobs by 2030. In addition, a Society of Human Resource Management report indicates nearly 27% of manufacturing workers will retire over the next 10 years, along with their specialized skills and institutional knowledge.

Machining and Manufacturing Programs at 4 Campuses
East Windsor CT, Grand Prairie TX and Indianapolis IN
Our East Windsor CT, Grand Prairie TX and Indianapolis IN campuses offer the CNC Machining and Manufacturing Technology program. This course body is comprised of 10 course modules totaling 900 hours of classroom and hands-on machine shop training. It is available as either a day, afternoon or evening program. This provides convenient options for those students who are currently employed and want to attend school. After mastering the fundamental courses of blueprint reading and precision measurement, the student will learn CNC milling and turning, CAM mill & lathe design and tool path, and finish up with advanced multi-axis machining.
Mahwah is our first campus to offer Advanced Manufacturing with Robotics. Like all of our CNC-related programs, this one begins with the fundamentals of blueprint reading and precision measurement. Then instruction moves on to major core topics such as CNC milling and turning with set-up and programming, and on to CAM mill & lathe design with tool path training. Instruction is then received in both modern milling, drilling and work-holding, and then advanced multi-axis machining. The final piece is truly cutting edge – an introduction to robotics and how they apply to the manufacturing workspace. We use RoboDK for simulation and offline programming of industrial robots.
Learn on Haas Automation Machines
Haas machinery is considered the Industry standard, and the manufacturer continues to refine and develop advancements in machining. Our partnership with Haas Automation means you will train on the same types of machinery used in the most advanced manufacturing facilities. This will also aid you in your preparation to earn credentials from the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) in areas such of materials, job safety and planning, as well as machining, milling and turning.
A Career in Machining and Manufacturing Awaits
Upon graduating from our Machining and Manufacturing program, you will have earned the fundamental knowledge and necessary skills to enter the manufacturing sector of US industry. Training programs are conveniently located in the NY/NJ/CT metropolitan area, as well as in the center of the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area. Another excellent location is our Indianapolis campus, which is situated mid-west region within reach of Chicago and Detroit, the automotive manufacturing capital of our country.
