Advanced Manufacturing Technicians

Advancement Prospects

A technician with a bachelor’s degree in industrial production or engineering can advance their career by becoming an advanced manufacturing technologist, taking on higher-level tasks, and possibly supervising others. Technicians who earn a bachelor’s degree in engineering are also qualified to work as engineers, often leading to higher salaries than those earned by technicians and technologists. With additional training or formal education in business management, technicians may progress to high-level managerial or executive positions within their companies. Some technicians choose to teach at community colleges, four-year universities, or apprenticeship programs, while others may start their consulting firms.
