portrait of Cory Miller

Machine Tool Technology alum Cory Miller on technical education

" I have tremendous respect for skilled trades and technical colleges, as well as for the hard-working intelligent people that made or make the choice to attend them. The education and training I received at Dunwoody was the building block that propelled my career. I owe a debt of gratitude to this college and wouldn't be where I am today had I chosen differently. Dunwoody is a great institution and there will always be demand for tradesmen and women who roll up their sleeves everyday to get the job done. "
