The new Advanced Technology Center helps students:

  • Prepare for entry-level employment in CNC machining after just 1 semester
  • Build cool parts/projects on state-of-the-art metal cutting machinery
  • Earn 4 national industry certifications in just 1 semester
  • Develop the skills needed to earn high wages and advancement in a CNC machining career

The HURCO donation includes 8 machines: 5 CNC machining centers, including a 5 axis trunnion style mill, and 3 turning centers, including a live tooling lathe. These machines are state of the art and are top in the industry in conversational programming.
