Careers in Industrial Machining
Recently Mr. Brian Bahr from RCTC came to speak with agriculture students about careers in machining. Brian, a past 1985 graduate from Southland, is an instructor at RCTC and teaches industrial machining. Mr. Bahr stressed the high demand for students in his area and how CNC machining is making a strong comeback in the United States. Brian is visiting local Agriculture and Industrial tech programs in hopes to build partnerships. He hopes to have high school students help work with his department to build a wooden motorcycle through machined parts. Brian knows that by partnering up with schools he can gain interest of students and also meet the void for machinists in Industry.
