Machinists set up and operate a variety of computer-controlled and mechanically-controlled machine tools to produce precision metal parts, instruments, and other tools.

There are many different ways to become a machinist or tool and die maker. Machinists train in apprenticeship programs, vocational schools, or community or technical colleges, or on the job. To become a fully trained tool and die maker takes several years of technical instruction, as well as on-the-job training. Good math, problem-solving, and computer skills are important.

 

NOTE:

There is a lot of overlap between the resources you find on this page and on the page called Robotics and Numerical Controls. You will probably find yourself switching between the two.
