At one point or another, every student wonders what their education is for. With a Science, Technology, Engineering, and/or Math (STEM) curriculum, a strong answer is a career in manufacturing.
Advanced manufacturing is an exciting, dynamic field that is increasingly technical — incorporating automation, 3-D printing, robotics and screen technology.
Skilled workers trained to think critically, solve problems, and work together are needed to design, maintain, and direct these processes that produce the every day objects we are all so fond of.
For students who might be interested in learning about the parts that go into a car, computer, or phone they want, a career in manufacturing may be a perfect fit. It promises to satisfy curiosity, offers compelling financial rewards, and guarantees a fun and fulfilling future.
“Manufacturing is more than just putting parts together. It’s coming up with ideas, testing principles and perfecting the engineering, as well as final assembly.”
