The United States is in the midst of another industrial renaissance. Technology and advances in software and hardware are driving a comeback for manufacturing, with increased productivity and promise for renewing aging infrastructure. Smart data and a push for high-tech are transforming the industrial landscape, with widespread dedication to productivity, efficiency, speed and quality.
The growing American manufacturing sector is in the midst of a technology-driven makeover. Over the next decade, 15 of the 20 fastest-growing jobs in America are going to be in science, technology, or engineering. Within five years, there will be another 2.4 million STEM job openings in the U.S., according to an article in The Washington Post.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, wind turbine technicians (“wind techs”) may be among the fastest-growing occupations, projected to grow 24% from 2012 to 2022. While this may sound like a surprising figure, consider that 15 million average American homes today are powered by wind energy.
