Manufacturing Day in Oakland County is a celebration of modern manufacturing. On Friday, October 6, 2017, companies across the country will open their doors to students, teachers and counselors to highlight the technologies and careers in the new world of advanced manufacturing. Students from the County’s four Oakland Schools Technical Campuses and local schools will tour more than 36 leading manufacturers in the region for a firsthand look at advanced manufacturing facilities. Manufacturing Day is a great opportunity to explore many career options, plus hear directly from working professionals about what they do and the skills needed. The goal is to inspire the next generation of manufacturing professionals! This is the third time Oakland County has participated in the event, which grows bigger every year.
