Y2MAKE: Creating our Future Through Advanced Manufacturing

ManTech-2016-Eventbrite-Logo

Y Manufacturing?

We are in the midst of a manufacturing renaissance, especially in the Southeast. The Upstate has a seasoned workforce, however with the increase of new technologies and approaches to manufacturing including additive and robotics, the requisite skills needed in science and engineering have also increased. How do improve this knowledge gap? How do we get more interested in manufacturing especially the Y and Z generations? How do we tap into the large number of engineers in SC to help?

At our MESHSC event on Tuesday, April 19 our speakers, who are passionately advocating learning and advancement of manufacturing in South Carolina, will be addressing these questions and more. Both speakers will share insights into their organizational initiatives involving human capital development needs.
