Why should I attend Manufacturing Day

Whether you are a freshman or a senior, attending Manufacturing Day is a great eye opening experience to the new and innovative way manufactures are integrating technology and hands on experience into the work place. These high skilled, high wage jobs, are not like that the manufacturing jobs our parents or grandparents had.  These jobs tap into an individual’s creative thinking, problem solving and analytical skills.

Students will be exposed to a range of career paths that start off with a high school diploma and on-the-job training on up to a bachelor’s degree.  For a full list of potential jobs, wages, degree requirements check out the career paths page.


As a freshmen or sophomore manufacturing day is a great start to considering taking Career Technical Education (CTE) classes in your junior and senior year. Across Macomb County CTE classes are available in automotive repair, mechanical drafting, public safety, computer programming, systems administrator, engineering, machine tool and technology, and may more. Ask your school’s counselor or CTE coordinator on how you can get involved in these courses.
