Manufacturing and Product Development Sector

The Manufacturing and Product Development Sector provides a foundation in manufacturing processes and systems. Manufacturing is the use of tools and labor to make products to sell. Product development involves the creation of an idea and the subsequent design and process that results in a product for sale. This sector is closely related to engineering and industrial design. An important part of California’s economy, this sector produces a wide range of products from sophisticated electronic/computer related equipment to the simplest of toys. As our world becomes more dependent on electronics, students with training and education in manufacturing and product development will continue to be in high demand. The Manufacturing and Product Development Sector is for students who enjoy working with their hands, building or designing infrastructures, and expressing themselves artistically.
