We are currently looking for qualified individuals to join our team. The success of the students who rely on the machine shops is influenced greatly by the quality of our employees.

We are seeking:

  • A second or third year student.
  • Who is willing to learn how to use every machine in our facility to a level of proficiency that will allow them to teach it. 
  • Eager to advance both through the ranks of tech and as a student in terms of broadening their own abilities.
  • Able to interpret questions and reference relevant resources to assist students in their projects.
  • Comfortable and capable of working with students of all skill levels in a machine shop environment. 


All new technicians start by creating projects on all machines  and performing maintance work. This provides new hires the oppertunity to become familiar with the machine shop and develop their machining, welding and woodworking skills. Once the technician has proven he or she is able to teach students how to use all of the equiment in the shop they will be promoted and begin working with students.
