Highland Community College to host a CNC Machine Open House

There will be a CNC Machining Open House from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 6 in the Dorothy and R.C. Clock Technology Center (building T) at Highland Community College, 2998 W. Pearl City Rd., Freeport, Ill.

This is a great time to view our CNC and CAD labs, meet the instructor, and learn more about our degree and certificate programs. Scholarship opportunities will also be discussed. CNC machines will be working, with simulators powered up. Demonstrations on CAD and 3D Cad will also be given.

“Highland’s CNC program has grown in recent years and area employers continue to seek qualified CNC machinists,” said Aaron Sargent, Industrial Manufacturing Instructor. “We have two certificates and a two-year AAS Degree with an emphasis on CNC machining. Our relationship with area manufactures is strong and graduates of our CNC programs have great success in finding employment with companies inside and outside of Highland’s district.”

Instructors are fluent in CNC machine setup and processes. Skills in combination with entry-level knowledge of welding, electronics, and automation will prepare students with knowledge for employment in manufacturing facilities utilizing CNC machining or CAD-related work.
