New industries locating in the college’s service area of Harnett, Lee, and Chatham counties, as well as existing industries, are looking for skilled metalworkers. The first place they look is the college’s Machining Technology Program, which has one of the best reputations in North Carolina for producing skilled machinists and tool and die makers.

Come and learn why machining and tool and die making are great hands-on, high-tech careers with many opportunities and good pay. Visitors will tour the facility. Financial aid information, schedules, placement test information and applications will be available.
