Tours of HCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center, exhibits by 28 manufacturing firms and a CEO Panel entitled “The Future of Manufacturing” will also be showcased.

“With hourly compensation 17% higher than in other industries, manufacturing careers are rewarding and well-paid,” said HCC Professor Adam Scobie. “Graduates of HCC’s 9-month program work with CNCs, lasers, semi-conductors and more. It’s very exciting.”

Today there is a shortage of skilled labor in the manufacturing industry. By 2025 it is estimated that U.S. manufacturers will have 2 million jobs open due to a skills gap.
