Advanced Manufacturing

When a billion-dollar operation suddenly goes down, the advanced technical skills of a few team members can bring the whole automated process back to life.

Advanced Manufacturing is a label that encompasses many different kinds of work, often involving machines that create technologically complex products. Over 2,000 jobs will be available in the next five years at advanced manufacturing companies like the new Nephron pharmaceutical facility and Michelin, which will be expanding its operations and preparing to replace many retirees.

Many advanced manufacturing students receive full scholarships, paid on-the-job training while in school, and the possibility of securing great-paying jobs with benefits upon completion of their program.
