Students interested in careers in manufacturing and engineering have spent much of October visiting manufacturers and seeing first-hand what they have been learning in the classroom.

As part of the Manufacturing Association of Central New York’s Manufacturing Career Day students traveled to Bristol Myers Squibb, a global biopharmaceutical company in Syracuse.

Students also toured Cryomech, a Syracuse company which manufactures cryorefrigerators. Its products are tested, proven and in use all over the world.
