some other schools, says Shane Sumner. He is the president and chief executive officer at Snapper, the lawnmower company. Sumner runs a huge plant in McDonough, Ga., that is three times as productive as it was only 10 years ago. Now, lasers cut the parts. Computers control the steel-stamping presses and robots do the welding. All this happens under the watchful eyes of trained people. The end result is a better lawnmower. If you really want to go places in advanced manufacturing, get an engineering degree. Employers will be fighting over you come graduation, says Cynthia Redwine. She is the director of the Career Resources Center at the University of Michigan’s School of Engineering. “We get recruiters from companies like Boeing, General Electric, Ford, and Northrop-Grumman,” says Redwine. In 2005, mechanical engineering graduates got jobs with average starting salaries of $52,150, she says. Stay on for a master's degree in manufacturing engineering and you could start at about $70,000. Even for an entry-level manufacturing worker, the pay is good. According to the federal government’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average hourly wage

for a production worker making transportation equipment was over $21 an hour in late 2005. That’s about $43,000 a year—without overtime. For someone making computers or electronic equipment, the average wage was almost $18 an hour. Steelmakers make about the same. And it goes up from there. Gain more work experience and continue your education and you may find yourself a production control manager. They make an average of $76,000 per year. What about a plant manager? They make an average of $109,000 per year. Thinking really big? A manufacturing executive makes approximately $210,000. “There are tons of jobs in advanced manufacturing for those with education, training, and good work ethics,” says Conroy, from Nexen.“And the opportunities to advance are great too. A career in advanced manufacturing is really something young people should think about.” Want to hear the best soundtrack at a manufacturing-careers website? Tap your way to www.dreamitdoit.com. The site’s full of good info, including a career quiz, videos of stuff being made, and a search engine to find that perfect school. Well worth a visit. 6
