   Award for its outstanding precision machining technology program, ded- icated to providing students with spe- cialized knowledge in traditional and emerging technical areas as well as general knowledge that fosters a life of learning.
State Tech offers a two-year asso- ciate degree in Precision Machining Technology and currently has more than 80 students enrolled in the pro- gram. The school’s curriculum pro- vides students with the practical expe- rience, knowledge and judgment to plan, prepare and operate precision machines.
Graduates understand 3D modeling, computerized post-processing, and CNC setup and operation. Throughout the program, students complete increasingly complex lab projects to develop skills. Those who successfully complete their Level 1 projects receive National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification.
With 15 Haas CNC machines, State Tech is an active member of the Haas Technical Education Center Network. Students are exposed to manual machining, CNC turning and multi- axis machining centers, computerized precision measurement, rapid proto- typing, and waterjet cutting. State Tech’s program includes 20 hr. of hands-on experience per week. Instructors have at least 15 years of experience and all are graduates of the college’s Precision Machining Tech- nology program.
State Tech also has a 99-percent job-placement rate for students who complete the program, with graduates working for companies across the state of Missouri and throughout the Midwest.
