Would you like to be able to take a block of steel and mill it into a shiny, useful automobile, aircraft or spacecraft part or make a BattleBot and take it into competition? While many people still picture dirty, dusty factories when they think of manufacturing, the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Manufacturing is actually on the cutting edge of today’s newest technologies and innovations, with a huge range of job opportunities and types of workspaces available. In school, the hard work involved in writing exams and college essays results in grades and certificates. However, in the manufacturing industry, you create tangible products like food, drugs, equipment. These products are items used often by you and other people.
Knowing that what is produced will help people may be the motivating factor you need to believe your life has a purpose. Manufacturing is essentially creation and can take you as far as your imagination allows!
