The NIMS Student Summit at this year’s IMTS – The International Manufacturing Technology Show will combine an interactive orientation and Career Development Center (CDC) with a dynamic, self-guided tour of the technology and manufacturing exhibition. IMTS 2010 is scheduled for September 13-18 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
Sponsored by AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology and the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS), the Student Summit aims to generate interest and incite enthusiasm in young people for precision manufacturing through direct contact with industry professionals and state-of-the-art technology. Admission to the show is free for educators and their students, and registration is available at imts.com.
The CDC will serve as the focal point of the summit. Human resource representatives will outline careers and opportunities, and graduating high school and college students can drop off resumes for participating companies to review for job openings. Student-friendly exhibitors will be available for discussions of career opportunities and the skill sets required for work in the precision manufacturing industry.
“By tying the information we share in the orientation directly to processes students will see in the CDC and on the show floor, we can do an outstanding job of communicating the wide variety of exciting and rewarding career options in precision manufacturing,” says NIMS Executive Director Stephen Mandes.
