According to The Times of Northwest Indiana,
Indiana remains a national manufacturing powerhouse, both in employment and output. The state has the highest concentration of manufacturing jobs in the nation, and one of five Hoosiers work in the manufacturing sector, according to the Indiana Department of Economic Development.
Indiana’s manufacturing sector produced an estimated output of $93.61 billion in 2014, according to the National Manufacturing Association.”
Our Effort to Keep Indiana a Manufacturing Powerhouse
As part of its mission to keep manufacturing engineering talent in Indiana, the Flexware team has spent the last two years creating and improving “the ultimate 12-week summer internship experience”, called The Trailblazer Fellowship.
The Trailblazer Fellowship
It is a 12-week summer internship experience that pairs top engineering students with top manufacturing companies in the mid-west. The immersion experience includes:
- professional development training,
- building a peer network with other talented students,
- and mentoring by the manufacturing company and Flexware professionals.
We’re Always Looking for Indiana Manufacturing Host Companies
For the upcoming summer of 2017, we still have openings for additional Indiana manufacturing host companies to join us on this fun adventure.
