Stay ahead of the curve, with or without an engineering degree
It’s obvious that opportunity will be knocking loudly at the door of anyone with a degree in engineering. But did you know that the automation industry also needs people who aren’t engineers? In fact, one of the job titles that’s poised to grow exponentially is automation technician, which you can do with just an associate degree or even a high school diploma.
Automation technicians help install, operate, maintain, and troubleshoot robotic systems that are a staple of today’s manufacturing plant and the factory of the future. If you enjoy working with machinery and watching how mechanical systems evolve over time, then this could be the career for you.
A career in technical sales is another excellent opportunity for anyone who loves the idea of working in automation but isn’t interested in becoming an engineer. As a technical sales associate, you’ll learn about the latest automation technologies and help prospective customers see how they can use them to solve their business challenges.
