Future Factory – How Automation is Impacting STEM Careers in Manufacturing

PROVIDED BY: ManpowerGroup/Manpower Engineering


Manufacturing has undergone many transformations, from dirty, dark and dangerous to advanced, digital and connected. Automation, Advanced Technologies and AI are impacting the STEM skills required across the manufacturing industry at an amazing rate. Almost half of all roles in manufacturing (49%) will change over the next three to five years as the industry becomes fully digital.

In this presentation we will share new and emerging roles across seven areas of technical expertise and their core STEM capabilities expected to be required.  Discuss how workers can progress into new positions and what employers are doing to help upskill tomorrow's manufacturing talent at speed and scale to improve retention and increase efficiency.

The goal is to help students and educators peek into the future to understand the potential STEM roles and careers that await them after graduation.
