This fall, Montgomery Community College added three new programs to it's academic lineup.
The Metal Engraving curriculum is designed to train students in eye-hand coordination, artistic vision, and the technology necessary in occupations involving the embellishment of metals.
Course work will include embellishments utilizing the hammer and chisel, power engraving devices, acid etching, the inlaying of precious metals and jewels into a metal base, bas-relief graving, and the sinking of scenes into the medium.
Graduates should be able to apply the acquired skills in occupations requiring sound bench work skills. Such occupations might include gold and/or silver smithing, gunsmithing, the tool and die trades, printing plates, and jewelry.
