College of the Canyons (Priority)

Why 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. Further, manufacturing firms create regional wealth by producing a product that is exported across the state, nation and/or world. This attracts additional funds to the region — building wealth for busi¬nesses, individuals and community. Because of this ripple effect, manufacturing firms have a deeper impact on the state of the economy than most other industries.
