Plastic Injection Molding


Plastic Injection Molding

The Plastic Injection Molding program prepares students for a fun, rewarding, and high-paying career as an injection molding process technician in a growing industry. Currently there are dozens of Utah companies that employ technicians to mold parts used in products ranging from lifesaving medical devices to cars and electronics. Students will work hands-on with highly trained and skilled instructors on state-of the-art equipment. As part of that training, students will safely setup, operate, and maintain injection molding machines and auxiliary equipment; perform injection molding changeovers; and collaborate with the product development team to improve processes. Students will receive training in operating and programming robotics. During the program, students will prepare capital equipment justifications, in order to support profitable purchases, and calculate cost estimate used to secure future business. After completing the program, students will work with one of our placement specialists to find employment that utilizes these newly gained skills.
