Program Description: Classes in the Machine Tool Technology (MTTC) program at Ivy Tech are a combination of lecture and lab, with strong emphasis on the lab component.  Nearly all class meetings have a hands-on portion where students will train and work on industry standard equipment.  This program allows students to gain experience in the setup, operation, and programming of computer numerically controlled (CNC) machinery.

The MTTC program features award winning instructors that are experienced in wide area of the MTTC industry and bring many years of experience to the classroom.  Students will also earn two National Institute for Metalworking Skills certifications (NIMS) as part of their courses to add to their resumé.  The MTTC program works with an advisory board made up of local machinists and industry professionals to help ensure that what is being taught in the classroom meets industry demand.
