Manufacturing Day

Virtual MFGDay

Get an Inside Look at Advanced Manufacturing

Students may be learning differently this year but, for many young adults, their interest in careers in advanced manufacturing is as strong as ever.  Manufacturing Day in Oakland County goes virtual on Friday, Oct. 2, and we want your school to join us.  
Companies from around the county are hosting remote tours, highlighting this challenging and rewarding career path.  There are so many opportunities right here in Oakland County and around the Metro Detroit region – thousands of openings in advanced manufacturing are projected in the coming years.

This is a great introduction to advanced manufacturing, educational and training requirements for entry-level positions and what it takes to succeed.
