Today is National Manufacturing Day, and hundreds are at SUNYIT to mark the occasion. The school hosted a conference and expo for those interested in starting a career in the manufacturing field. With the Quad C project under construction right on the SUNYIT campus, the regrowth of manufacturing in the U.S. is easier to visualize. This field has undergone a huge transformation in recent years.
"Manufacturing was perceived as, you know, large brick buildings, factory floors, you know machining, people would refer to in different ways sort of a blue-collar type of picture. And manufacturing today in the U.S., that's not the way it is, it is high-tech," said SUNYIT President Robert Geer.
A panel of local manufactures gave virtual tours of their facilities and fielded questions from students.
