Over the next decade nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely be needed in these areas: CNC/CAMM, automation, emerging technologies (like mechatronics in sensors and mechanical systems), digital fabrication, and welding. However, almost 2 million jobs are expected to go unfilled due to the skills gap in the workforce. This is according to The Manufacturing Institute’s report, “The Skills Gap in U.S. Manufacturing 2015 and Beyond.”

“There are jobs waiting in these industries for people with the training they can get from LCCC,” said Johnny Vanderford, LCCC SMART Center project engineer and professor in the MEMS program. “These programs prepare students to enter the workforce and employers are eager to hire them.”

Creating a supply of workers with manufacturing skills – engineering, skilled trades and production – is absolutely critical to the future competitiveness of companies and the industry as a whole, the report said. But, the report notes that skill deficiencies exist in many potential employees, including in technical, computer, problem solving, basic technical training and math skills. Employers are also concerned about employees’ ability to work well in a team environment.

“Growing a talented workforce helps ensure manufacturing will continue to be the bedrock of our economy and competitiveness,” said Jay Timmons, president and CEO of The National Association of Manufacturers.

Lorain County Community College can help you prepare for a new career or upgrade your current one in these areas: CNC/CAMM, automation, emerging technologies (like micro-electrical mechanical systems), digital fabrication, occupational safety and welding.

Mechatronics Info Session
An information session on the mechatronics program will be held:

6-7 p.m., Tuesday, November 10 in the Richard Desich Smart Center, room SM 306.

Mechatronics consists of a multidisciplinary field of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, controls, material science, and micro electrical mechanical systems (MEMS).

Students have the option of pursuing an associate degree, one-year technical certificate, or short-term technical certificate.  Also available to students is the opportunity to be involved with LCCC’s work-based learning program, where the student is hired as a paid intern with a company involved with mechatronic products.

Mechatronics information will also be included in all RampUp events.
