Do you like making things with precision with or without the aid of a computer? Do you consider yourself to be a bit of a techie? Do you take pride in a seeing high-quality manufactured products? Perhaps you should consider a career as a Machinist!

Today's manufacturing utilizes innovative technologies, including sophisticated Computer Numerical Control (CNC), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software and specialty materials to develop and build the products of tomorrow. CNC Machinist technicians design, manufacture and repair components, parts and tools from a variety of metals and other engineered materials using traditional and state-of-the-art machines. Many machinists of today can be found transferring complex mechanical engineering drawings from the computer screen to computerized machinery.

Faculty, Advisors & Staff

instructor and students
All of our instructors are qualified experienced Machinists or Tool and Die Makers/Mold Makers. Their passion for the trade is evident in their pursuit for the highest product standard and they mentor their students to achieve the same success.

Some of our instructors are IZUNA graduates, that have succeeded in industry and now have come back to offer their wisdom and knowledge to the students.

Some of our instructors have bachelor and master degree. If you find the machinist career is not challenging enough, you could continue education at IZUNA to study a Bachelor of Manufacturing Technology program to obtain a bachelor degree in manufacturing.

Many of our students have the opportunity to gain a global manufacturing perspective, as some of our instructors have experience working in Europe, Asia, and North America.
