Demand for Workers is Higher than Supply

Machinists are involved in building everything from automobiles and airplanes to skateboards and spaceships. As one of the top earning careers, Machining is a secure career that requires critical thinking and hands-on expertise.

Students enrolled in Applied Engineering and Machining learn a wide variety of machining skills from CNC (Computer Numerical Control) to manual machining on lathes, mills, and grinders. Precision measuring and automotive machining such as cylinder head surfacing and cylinder boring are also taught.

According to the Ohio Department of Education, the demand for qualified precision machinists has exceeded the supply for more than 40 years. Because of this, machinists enjoy a high employment and wage rate. Seniors may qualify for apprenticeships or early placement.
