Manufacturing Day

What is Manufacturing Day?

Manufacturing Day in Oakland County is a celebration of modern manufacturing - an opportunity for students to get a firsthand look at what today’s engineers, technicians and other staff do each day at advanced manufacturing facilities across the region.

This year’s event takes place on Friday, October 4, 2019.  Companies of all sizes will open their doors to provide a close look at their design labs, testing centers and manufacturing operations. You will hear directly from working professionals about what they love to do and the skills required to get there. 

The goal of Manufacturing Day is to inspire students to explore the broad range of high-paying, fulfilling job opportunities in southeast Michigan and discover if there is a career just right for them. This is the fifth time Oakland County has participated in the event, which grows bigger every year. 


​See what modern manufacturing really looks like and explore your career options by touring a facility with the latest equipment. 

Experience firsthand the exciting technologies and speak with people that love what they do. 

Get answers to your questions, among them:

  • How do I get started working at a place like this?
  • What classes should I study?
  • What do you like about your job here? 
  • And many more!
