We’re excited to announce that Southeast Community College–Milford (whom we’ve featured here on the blog before) will be hosting Careers in Manufacturing Day on October 17th, 2014 for excellent students in Lincoln and Southeast Nebraska interested in careers in manufacturing.

What Careers in Manufacturing Day Is

Careers in Manufacturing Day on October 17th, 2014 at Southeast Community College–Milford is designed to promote careers in manufacturing. More specifically, we’re highlighting several of our programs, including Precision Machining and Automation Technology, Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Non-Destructive Testing, and Electrical/Electromechanical/Electronics Technology.

This event (which will take place from approximately 9:00am to 2:00pm) will be a fun, interactive learning experience for roughly 60 high school seniors, plus high school industrial technology teachers who can accompany them for the day. We want Careers in Manufacturing Day to be fun, and in all, it should be a great opportunity for students to learn as much as possible about manufacturing and the abundant opportunities present within it. 

Who It’s For 

Careers in Manufacturing Day at Southeast Community College–Milford is intended for high school seniors interested in careers in manufacturing. We’re looking for highly motivated students with a good attendance record, good skills and grades, and a good attitude. If that describes you and you’d like to learn more about opportunities in manufacturing, Careers in Manufacturing Day may be for you. 

What To Expect 

Careers in Manufacturing Day will start with a continental breakfast and registration and end with drawings for door prizes. The event will run from approximately 9:00am to 2:00pm at Southeast.

The entire day is focused on job opportunities and programs in manufacturing. We’ll have a keynote speaker to discuss careers in manufacturing. What’s perhaps the most exciting about Careers in Manufacturing Day is our tour through the four programs we mentioned above: Precision Machining and Automation Technology, Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Non-Destructive Testing, and Electrical/Electromechanical/Electronics Technology.

Students won’t just learn abstract concepts. In fact, to work through each of the programs, the students will experience a flashlight being made from start to finish, all the way from design to testing, manufacturing, and assembly. They’ll be able to take these flashlights home with them, and really see in detail how manufacturing works and what Southeast’s programs can teach them.

We’ll also have a panel of graduates from our manufacturing programs, as well as current students and instructors, and advisors/employers to our program. The panel is fun and informative, and was one of our highlights of last year!

Southeast Community College–Milford has excellent manufacturing-related programs, and some of the best instructors and technology around. They pride themselves on their state-of-the-art technology, great instructors, and relationships with local employers and industry members. As we like to mention frequently on this blog, manufacturing is a great career, and enrolling in a manufacturing-related program at a school like Southeast Community College–Milford is a great way to earn a degree and get working for the fraction of the cost of a Bachelor’s degree, often with better career prospects after graduation.

If you’re interested in a career in manufacturing and live in southeast Nebraska, we highly recommend checking out their programs. We’re very excited for Careers in Manufacturing Day at Southeast Community College–Milford, and look forward to a great turnout!

For more information, please contact Joel Dickinson at Southeast Community College. If you’re interested in attending, be in touch with your high school industrial technology teacher. We’ll be sending invitations to them, so they will be your outlet if you think this is an event you may be interested in!
