Manufacturing Day

Manufacturing Day in Oakland County, a celebration of modern manufacturing, has become a resounding success.  In 2019, a record 1,250 students from 25 high schools and four technical campuses toured 43 advanced manufacturing facilities across the county.

This year, due to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the planning team has decided to move forward with a virtual Manufacturing Day event on Friday, October 2.

We envision Manufacturing Day in Oakland County to include

  • Video tours of companies to learn about manufacturing technologies and production processes
  • Interviews with employees about their work, training requirements and careers
  • Interactive opportunities with employees via a chat room, to discuss entry-level jobs, apprenticeships and internships

The virtual event will not replace the value of in-person tours and face-to-face interactions of years past, but we still hope they leave students with a sense of excitement and purpose as they consider their futures. We hope to return to live tours in 2021.
