Technologists / technicians play a vital role in connections operations with theory in a manufacturing environment. Technology is the making, modification, usage, and knowledge of tools, machines, techniques, processes, systems, and methods of organization, in order to solve a problem, improve an existing solution to a problem, or perform a specific function.
Careers in technology revolve around every single thing you see around you, making it a universally applicable and ever evolving career. Today’s global market has contributed to significant advancements in the areas of science and technology, and the demand for innovative products and designs has led to new challenges in manufacturing. Adaptation and innovation are at the heart of technology and its technologists.
