CNC Machining

Students trained in computer numerical control (CNC) machining are in high demand by industry employers. CNC lathes are rapidly replacing older production lathes due to their ease of setting, operation, repeatability and accuracy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, CNC machinists earn a median annual wage of $42,600.
