Toolingu.com is the leading online training provider focused on the unique needs of manufacturers. Our roots are in manufacturing, and our business started by recognizing the industry's specific needs. While some may report that "manufacturing is dead," or that "all the jobs are overseas," we recognize instead that manufacturing faces a challenge. Today's manufacturers are ready to compete, but to do so successfully, they need the right people, and they need the right knowledge.

Manchester School of Technology
Manchester, NH

Programs: Manufacturing Technology

The new MST Manufacturing Technology program provides real-world exposure for students to a wide variety of technology areas so that students can learn about exciting careers available in science, technology, engineering and manufacturing.

Students will also develop marketable skills for those careers that have been developed by the leaders of our local companies. Year one will consist of students working on learning modules like those pictured. Students will complete projects and learn to work in teams to solve problems.

The proposed program for Manchester School of Technology (MST) provides first year students with a set of "core" skills to prepare them for entry-level employment. When students continue on in year two of the program, they will develop "intermediate" skills that will prepare them for employment or enrollment in post secondary education. Year two will give students the opportunity to also learn welding, sheet metal work, and machining, (including CNC machining). Higher education can be at the college level instruction through Manchester Community College (MCC).

It is the vision of those involved in the development of this program that there is a seamless transition to the proposed Production Technology program at MCC. Similar types of equipment with some additions and additional curricula would be used by MCC. The program at MCC would provide advanced skills in production technology and more advanced manufacturing. MST students would be eligible for college credit through articulation agreements or dual enrollment with MCC.
