- Program Description:
Advanced manufacturing may be the best career you’ve never heard of. If you like robotics and ultra-fast automated systems, you’ll likely find today’s manufacturing environment a fascinating place to work.
Advanced manufacturing systems encompass an array of mechanical, electronic, and computer-based systems. To keep operations running smoothly, employers need professionals skilled in all three areas. These experts serve as a vital link between engineers and technicians. From conception to design, development, testing, and production, they are essential to the production process.
The Manufacturing Institute reports that there are currently more than 600,000 unfilled jobs—there just aren’t enough skilled workers to fill all of the open positions. As a matter of fact, it’s projected that this skills gap is going to grow to about 1.5 million over the next decade.*
If this sounds like a career you’ve been looking for, consider ECPI University. Through our year-round schedule, you can earn an Associate of Science Degree in Electronics Engineering Technology with a concentration in Mechatronics in as little as 1.5 years.
