Next Generation

Manufacturing needs talented professionals! Plenty of careers are available for manufacturing engineers as well as trade professionals such as machinists and toolmakers. One of the challenges manufacturing employers face is that young people with aptitudes for science, mathematics and engineering are often unaware of the opportunities available in these fields. Another, related challenge is the out-of-date perceptions related to manufacturing, which in most manufacturing companies is becoming an increasingly more technical field requiring relying on knowledgeable personnel who are well-compensated. This page documents the increasing awareness of career opportunities in manufacturing, and describes the efforts of manufacturers and other organizations to find, attract and develop the next generation of manufacturing talent.
