Here’s the lead-in to an article written for Tech Crunch by Vicki Holt, president and CEO of Proto Labs, a global company and manufacturer of custom prototypes and short-run production parts.
“Thanks to massive advancements in automation technology and analytics software, the American manufacturing industry of today is a far cry from the assembly lines and manual labor of the past. Manufacturing in the 21st century is a high-tech fusion of software and mechanical engineering, automated processes and complex production equipment, 3D CAD models and on-demand parts. The fortunate result of this modern-day industrial revolution is an expanding demand for highly skilled STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics)-related positions.” Read the full article here.
Manufacturing today is very far removed from the old perceptions of low skill, physically demanding, unrewarding work in a unpleasant environment. But myths persist. The bottom line is: there is high demand for 21st century skills in advanced manufacturing, demand which is expected to grow—for interesting work, with good pay.
