It’s a new day for manufacturing in Colorado and anyone interested in being part of one of today’s hottest and most interesting fields should think about advanced manufacturing. Digital technology is transforming manufacturing making it leaner and smarter—and jump-starting an American industrial revival.
According to the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, the industry is diverse and geographically dispersed across the state with over 5,900 manufacturing firms, more than 120,000 employees, and $16.3 billion in annual economic output. Colorado is at the forefront of advanced manufacturing and opportunities abound: Today’s industry is cleaner, safer and higher-tech than ever before. An estimated 4.6 million jobs will be available across the nation in the next decade with an average undergraduate salary starting at more than $76,000.
Studying Advanced Manufacturing Science at MSU Denver means your education goes beyond the classroom. As one of the nation’s first undergraduate degree programs, we’ve developed an applied multidisciplinary curriculum using the state-of-the-art tools and technologies (such as the Stratasys Fortus 900mc additive printer) available in the award-winning Aerospace and Engineering Sciences facility you’ll call home.
