Lakeshore Technical College Heeds the Call for High-Tech Workers

Link to October 30 Sheboygan Press editorial.

Excerpt: The opening of the school's Center for Manufacturing Excellence will help students interested in careers in manufacturing get the needed training in technology.

Contrary to some recent headlines, manufacturing is not dead in Wisconsin. Sure, this once-thriving segment of the state's economy has taken a severe hit over the last several years. But there are still dozens of companies, big and small, who need highly trained people to work in manufacturing in the years to come.

This industry is now dominated by computers and robotics and requires people to be fully literate in the technology needed to both develop the machines of the future and the people who will operate them.
