Student Quotes:

"I liked that I could make parts and tools that I can use in everyday life. It's neat being able to make a flashlight or a pen. I tell people that I made those things in class but they don't believe me; they think I bought them from a store."
- Machining/Engineering Tech student

"The teachers are great! They aren't like other teachers. They don't just tell or show you how to do things. They make you figure it out."
- Machining/Engineering Tech student
