Training at Its Finest

Given the true-to-life flow cell environment, industry-backed curriculum, key partners, and top-of-the-line resources, it is little surprise that the Integrated Machining Technology (IMT) program at IALR’s Gene Haas Center has received national acclaim. Noted by two governors and countless other localities as an outstanding model, the program has spurred economic development by helping to attract leading advanced manufacturers to the region. FasTech has hired a number of IMT graduates who bring not only advanced technical skills but also honed leadership abilities.

For those individuals who have completed a two-year precision machining program or who have equivalent work experience, the Integrated Machining Technology program takes advanced machining skills training and knowledge to the next level. Not only are the classes set in a flow cell environment with hands-on application, but they also are run by experts who ensure training matches industry’s needs. 

Students who want to add the following courses and skills to their resume will appreciate the competitive edge they gain after completion of the seven-month program, which often results in leadership positions within industry.
