Manufacturing is a cornerstone in South Carolina's economy. In fact, one of our many objectives in CATE is to correct the idea that manufacturing involves repetitive, unskilled tasks that happened in dark, dirty factories. This is a ridiculous idea to anyone who has actually worked in or visited a manufacturing facility in the last decade.
The fact is, today’s manufacturing jobs are highly skilled. Not only that, but they take place in some of the most exciting, innovative work environments anywhere.
Below is a link to the Manufacturing Careers video created by South Carolina students during the 2017 SC Business Week.
Be sure to share with students this brief video on four real South Carolina manufacturing environments.
Thanks to the folks at the SC Chamber of Commerce and Michelin of North America, for this wonderful student resource on why Manufacturing is SO COOL!
CATE is developing our most valuable resource - our students; helping them gain the skills, technical knowledge, academic foundation, and real-world experience, they need to become college and career ready in every sense of the word.
