Advanced Manufacturing Bootcamp for Tech Skills



According to a recent study by the Career Advisory Board, there is a general lack of technical proficiency among those entering the workforce. A 2015 study sponsored by The Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte found the skills gap in manufacturing could lead to an estimated 2 million unfilled job in the U.S. over the next decade, prompted in part by a lack of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills among its workforce.

To help bridge this growing tech skills gap, DeVry University is expanding DeVry Bootcamp to include 11 online Advanced Manufacturing Programs in collaboration with 180 Skills, an online career and technical education company for the advanced manufacturing industry. These skills-based, manufacturing training programs are designed to help students learn the technical skills and develop the competencies needed for entry-level advanced manufacturing roles, including machining, quality control, safety and automation, across a variety of industries in as little as two to three months.

Offered online in Illinois, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan, the Advanced Manufacturing Programs offer a blend of step-by-step explanations, interactive visuals, simulations and assessments enabling students to master the program materials efficiently and at their own pace. Specific programs include:

  • Advanced Manufacturing Technician
  • Aerospace Electrical Assembly Technician
  • Aerospace Quality Technician
  • Aerospace Structures Technician
  • CNC Lathe Production Technician
  • CNC Machining Center Production Technician
  • Composites Manufacturing & Repair Technician
  • Drafting & CAD Technician
  • Mechatronics & Industrial Automation Technician
  • Quality Assurance Technician
  • Safety Technician.

"DeVry University has deep roots in technology and 86 years of experience teaching students the necessary skills to help shape their future," said Shantanu Bose, Ph.D., provost, DeVry University. "With the resurgence in American manufacturing, it is imperative students are trained to meet the growing demand for high-tech manufacturing skills. DeVry Bootcamp is designed to help both students and employers bridge this skills gap."
