Maysville, KY. – Today, rookies in advanced manufacturing and the companies they’ll be working for participated in the first ever Kentucky Manufacturing Going Pro Signing Day. The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and the Kentucky Association of Manufacturers (KAM) sponsored celebrations for new hires in advanced manufacturing at all 16 KCTCS colleges across the state.
Companies participating in the event are: Air Integrity, Brown and Root, CTI Foods, Morehead Wood Products, as well as Morehead State University.
Every year, MCTC prepares students to go pro in high paying, in-demand careers in advanced manufacturing that lead to a better life. Because MCTC aligns its programs with local business needs, our students are prepared to walk out of college and into a high paying career.
“Learning that our graduates have been offered gainful employment because of the education they’ve earned at MCTC is one of my favorite parts of being a college president.” says, Dr. Stephen Vacik. “Ultimately, giving people the skills they need to get the job they want helps them achieve a better life. That is why we are here, and it keeps us focused on our mission of helping our students reach their goals.”
Although salaries vary by job and company, the Statewide Occupational Employment Wages data provided by the Kentucky Center for Statistics shows the average starting salary is nearly $34,000 with a median annual salary of $51,000.
