Before starting the M2K program,
studied Mechatronics Engineering at Kennesaw State University in Georgia. After two years, he left school.
Hunter remembered M2K from high school. He was on the BotsIQ team at the Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy and was introduced to the program there.
“After I couldn’t go to college anymore, I debated what to do. Since I enjoyed the BotsIQ program, I decided to pursue a career in machining,” Hunter said. “I found the CNC portion of the M2K program the most beneficial. The CNC training and programming G-code really helped me land my job… this is what employers are looking for. New Century Job Shop also helped because I learned how to change the spindle speed and feed rates to make parts look better. I learned how to get the job done faster and essentially better.”
Hunter accepted a machinist position at a local company in September.
