Technology, design, and precision meet in Edge Tech Academy’s CNC Machinist program. Computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines are important to the American industry. Students have the opportunity to learn to use these machines to take raw materials and turn them into manufacturing components used across various industries, from healthcare to aviation.
Becoming a CNC Machinist
Our students can expect industry-experienced instructors to teach the foundation concepts for using tools like lathes, milling machines, and grinders, to produce precision metal parts. Students can also learn to determine the cutting path, the speed of the cut, and the feed rate by programming instructions into the CNC machine. Graduates may seek careers as Machinists or Tool and Die Makers.*
