Milling Science and Management

cthyfault“What I like the most about majoring in milling science is the classroom experience. Small class sizes and hands-on activities provide a great environment and help milling students get to know each another. I’m learning about equipment I will use in the field as well as techniques and practices that will help me in my career.”
