Students who have an aptitude for science, technology and math and who like to tinker and make things, thrive in manufacturing careers. The wide variety of roles within manufacturing help bring out students’ talent in creativity, problem solving, teamwork and more which leads to rewarding work experiences. This is not your father's manufacturing environment - robotics, automation, technology and clean environments define today's manufacturing.

Many manufacturers offer excellent benefit programs and tuition reimbursement for ongoing training to keep skills on the cutting edge of technological changes. In addition, careers in manufacturing offer rewarding pay with salaries ranging from $35,000 to $60,000, and opportunities for advancement.
