Gainful Employment Information:

The Moore Tech Machining Technology/Machine Shop Program has redesigned its curriculum to meet the needs of Memphis' large and growing Medical Device Manufacturing industry. This program is taught in the most complete educational machine shop in the south with the most modern CNC machines. Courses provide the technical knowledge and fundamental experience necessary to perform machine shop work. Students learn to read and use blueprints skillfully, as well as hand tools and heavy machinery required to forge quality parts from metal.

Once students understand how to make metal parts with manual machines, students learn how to make metal parts with CNC Lathes and CNC Milling machines using our state-of-the-art computerized CNC machines. Our new Precision Medical Machining course familiarizes students with the skills, documentation and requirements needed by the large local medical device manufacturing industry.

Moore Tech training provides students the experience of actually performing in a working machine shop. Each student is given increasingly more challenging assignments according to his/her individual progress and ability. Students may accelerate according to their skills. A technician in the machine shop trade should have sound work habits, knowledge of mathematics and blueprint reading and be attentive to detail.

With the growing Medical Device Manufacturing Industry in Memphis as well as the other manufacturing, construction and service industries that need metal parts, Moore Tech’s program provides a student with the hands-on ability and confidence needed for successful employment in these industries.
