• ARE YOU A STUDENT Who WANTS TO FIND A JOB IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOU GRADUATE?

    Most manufacturing programs have 100% job placement

    That’s right, manufacturers are hiring students right out of high school and community college 2-year programs and those students end up making 25% more money than their friends do in other jobs. The federal government says that the average salary in manufacturing today is around $75,000.

    You are basically guaranteed a solid, high-paying career by getting a certificate or a degree from a manufacturing program at a high school or community college in Illinois - not to mention you’ll be doing things that can have a big impact on other people’s lives. You could be making things that have never been made before, or creating pieces for medical devices that save lives!

    Ask your Guidance Counselor how you can take TCD's Precision Machining elective to prepare for a career in advanced manufacturing.
