For many this word brings to mind images of dark, dirty environments filled with days of mindless assembly line work...

NOT SO FAST! Manufacturing has significantly advanced and now incorporates high-tech robotics, industrial automation, and information technology.

Exciting Careers – Today’s workers can enter the workforce with a high-school diploma and experience continuous technological advancements throughout their careers.  With Career and Technical Education programs, students can even earn certifications that allow them to enter the workforce at a higher level.

Well-Paying Jobs – I bet you didn’t know that the average annual income of U.S. Manufacturing employees in 2020 was $92,832!*

High-Growth Industry – according to the Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte, 4 million manufacturing jobs will need to be filled between now and 2030, making manufacturing an exciting and secure career choice.

To meet this growing demand, Wylie ISD, Collin College and local manufacturers are focused on preparing students for the high-tech skilled workforce of tomorrow.

In recognition of National Manufacturing Day, Wylie students will visit local high-tech manufacturers and see for themselves the exciting career opportunities of the future.
