Do you ever read labels? You'll find "made in" followed by a lot of places, like China, Malaysia, or the Philippines. It might make you think nothing is made in America. But you would be wrong. More products are made in the U.S. than any other country in the world. From food to computers, every year companies in the U.S. make $1.6 trillion worth of the things we use every day. That takes a lot of people - nearly 700,000 in South Carolina and 12 million in the United States. And manufacturers need more workers with advanced training and skills.
Our Engineering and Industrial Technology programs can prepare you for exciting careers in the world of manufacturing as a technician or supervisor. The average salary for a manufacturing job is $46,192 in South Carolina, and manufacturing workers earn 27% higher salaries than non-manufacturing workers. You can also use the skills you learn to work in other settings, such as hospitals, energy plants, and more. We also offer Construction Technology for careers in residential or commercial construction.
