When you step into a manufacturing facility today, you’ll quickly see that it’s not the same environment it may have been 50 years ago. The new era of manufacturers operate in technology-driven, innovative environments (think clean rooms, robots, and lasers—yes, we said lasers) to produce materials and products demanded around the globe.
And because of this new evolution, today’s manufacturing careers are much more diverse than those of generations before. The opportunities are high-tech and can range from electronics and mechanical engineering to software, IT and networking as well as industrial engineering, process engineering and project management. And we’re here to show you that these cutting-edge skills and jobs are in demand right here in South Central Wisconsin.
We can’t (and won’t) keep the secret that there are good-paying manufacturing jobs (and long-term careers) in the U.S. and that many are available right here in South Central Wisconsin. That’s why we’re partnering with the Dodge County Manufacturing Business Alliance to show you how and why manufacturing works.
