Why Major in Advanced Manufacturing?

The manufacturing sector is critical to California’s economy. For every one job created in manufacturing, at least two and a half jobs are created to support the sector. Manufacturing firms boost regional wealth by producing products that are exported across the state, nation, and world, attracting additional investments to the region.

As a world leader in advanced manufacturing, California must continue nurturing a superior workforce. Demand for graduates is expected to rise for years to come. Career pathways include welding, machining, industrial maintenance, engineering, and design.

Regionally, the need for manufacturing jobs will rise by 5% through 2023. That amounts to about 2,000 new jobs across the sector.

What's Your Earning Potential?

Manufacturing employees typically earn around $61,000 annually in the Sacramento region.
