MiraCosta Community College needs help from Industry Partners
The Machinist Technology Training program began on March 3. We have hired a lab assistant to help support more students and anticipate a class size of 14. As such, we would like to request the support of our local industry partners. If you have any types of metal (brass, aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel), we would greatly appreciate the donation! We are looking for round stock 3” and under, square stock 3”x3” or 2” thick by 4” wide (length for all can be up to 6 feet). We need your help in acquiring materials. Please download our complete wish list of Machinist Supplies to see if there's anything laying around your shop that you would be willing to donate. Or, if you would be willing to be part of our job shadowing program, please contact us at
Thank you!
