Manufacturing careers vary depending on the industry and skill level. Automotive and medical products are more automated, where automation technicians are leveraging computers to manage the assembly line. Installers are performing more manual work, assembling products, directly with their hands as they move 

                                   through the assembly line. A fabricator might be using tools to join two pieces of                                          metal together to create a large piece of machinery. A CNC Machinist works 

                                        with CNC machinery to create tools and parts from metal, plastic and other 

                                          materials. 

 

                                              Industrial Maintenance Technicians perform basic maintenance and 

                                             repairs on machines to keep the factory running efficiently while a welder 

                                            fuses metal parts by applying heat.
