Campus to Host Manufacturing Day Event October 2

DuBOIS – In celebration of Manufacturing Day 2015, Penn State DuBois will open its doors from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on October 2, to provide a look into today’s manufacturing environment and draw attention to the opportunities that a career in manufacturing can provide. Students will have an opportunity to tour the Penn State DuBois engineering labs, learn how to get a head start on a successful career in manufacturing, and complete a hands-on manufacturing project.

Manufacturing Day is an annual national event executed at the local level supported by thousands of manufacturers and educators as they host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses, plant tours and presentations designed to showcase modern manufacturing technology and careers.

“There is an increasing demand for highly skilled professionals in the manufacturing sector who can design, program and operate technology,” said Dr. Daudi Waryoba, Assistant Professor of Engineering. “The average age of a manufacturing employee is 56, and between now and 2020 there will be an unprecedented shortage of skilled workers who will need to be replaced.”

Manufacturing Day is co-produced by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the Manufacturing Institute (MI), the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and guest producer Industrial Strength Marketing (ISM). Media partners include the Edge Factor and the Science Channel and the national movie partner is American Made Movie.
