From Quality Magazine: Approximately 50 students from Palatine and Schaumburg High Schools received a hands-on introduction to the real-world opportunities available to them through pursuing a career in the field of manufacturing during a unique public-private partnership hosted by Sandvik Coromant in Schaumburg. The event is an effort by Sandvik Coromant, the National Association of Manufacturing Institute (NAMI), the Digital Manufacturing Design and Innovation Institute (DMDII), and the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association Education Foundation to introduce students to the wide-range of opportunities available in manufacturing, engineering and technology fields.
“As a manufacturer, we recognize the need to attract students to careers in our industry,” said Sean Holt, president Sandvik Coromant Americas. “It’s important to work with young people early on to create an environment where they can become excited about manufacturing, from designing and producing everyday items to uniquely high-tech objects that stretch the imagination. Through events like this, we will hopefully open their eyes to the possibilities, and show them how they can prepare for a career in manufacturing.”
