Ivy Tech Fort Wayne and MadeByMe hosting virtual Manufacturing Day event on Oct. 2

Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne is collaborating with MadeByMe to celebrate National Manufacturing Day on Oct. 2 with a virtual event from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Manufacturing Day is meant to address misconceptions about manufacturing by giving companies and employers a chance to showcase what they do and address the skilled labor shortage they face.

A growing share of manufacturing jobs require a certification and/or an associate degree. Ivy Tech’s programs are developed in collaboration with employers to provide students the best chance of landing an internship-work based learning experience and then a high-wage career.

With respect to social distancing and safety precautions, this year’s event will be held virtually. There will be three sessions including a presentation from Ivy Tech employees talking about their programs, a career exploration workshop where attendees can connect with local employers to discuss job and internship opportunities, and a Q&A panel with presenters and employers.

Employers in attendance will include Felderman Design-Build, Fort Wayne Metals, Generex, LLC, Micropulse, Inc., Ottenweller Company, Inc., PMG, Inc., Polygon Company, QuikCut, Rea Magnet Wire Company, Shambaugh & Son, Shindigz, Steel Dynamics, Inc., and Ward Corporation.
