Special to The Freeman

Oct. 6, 2014

PEWAUKEE – Waukesha County Technical College will host “Discovering Manufacturing” on Wednesday, October 15 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the service building of the main Pewaukee Campus.

“Discovering Manufacturing” is Pewaukee’s part of a statewide movement to explore manufacturing and learn about its impact on the economy, after the State of Wisconsin declared October as “Manufacturing Month.”

The event is designed for parents and students to get a closer look at what manufacturing looks like in the 21st century and how it can provide a solid career opportunity for those considering working in the field.

Participants will have opportunities to meet cutting-edge manufacturers and learn more about high-paying and in-demand industry careers. Additionally, participants will be able to explore industrial labs and receive information on the types of education needed to secure careers in manufacturing.
