The use of robotics is creating new career pathways in manufacturing!
You no longer need a PhD to work in robotics for manufacturing. With the advent of Industry 4.0, there is a career fit for everyone in advanced manufacturing - from repairing and operating robots to finding ways to make existing systems more productive. When robots take on dull, dirty, and dangerous jobs, workers have new opportunities for engaging work on the factory floor. Manufacturing is the lifeblood of the American economy and workers are key to ensuring that the U.S. can compete globally. There has never been a better time to launch your manufacturing career.
The ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Institute is funded by the Department of Defense and dedicated to ensuring U.S. readiness for robotics in manufacturing. The ARM Institute takes a comprehensive approach to this – catalyzing innovations in robotics and workforce development. Structured as a public-private partnership, the ARM Institute has nearly 400 member organizations spanning industry, government, and academia who share a common mission – securing America's future through manufacturing innovation, education, and collaboration.
