Learn About Manufacturing from Young Professionals
Students have more options than ever, and making a decision on career directions can be stressful. Our Manufacturing Navigator program helps students understand twenty-first century manufacturing careers and how they can contribute to the growth of the digital age and Industry 4.0. Our Navigators are young, but experienced manufacturing professionals who will come to your classroom to share their personal experience and unique perspectives on today’s manufacturing.
Guiding Students Through the Industry
Often overlooked or underdiscussed, manufacturing is one of the largest and fastest growing fields because it is at the center of some of the most innovative products and practices today. Manufacturers work with robotics, data, artificial intelligence, programming, and much more. Students often are unaware of the various opportunities within the industry. Educating students and providing them with industry awareness, job outlook, daily activities, and first-hand accounts allows students to realize their potential to prosper in the manufacturing industry.
Who are Navigators?
Navigators are manufacturing industry ambassadors dedicated to increasing industry awareness. Our Navigators use their personal, educational, and professional experience to tell the story of careers in manufacturing, explain the journey to becoming a successful manufacturing professional, and offer increased visibility inside a manufacturers daily life.
