Job Opportunities in Southwest Ohio

There is a tremendous need for skilled automation and technology workers in the advanced manufacturing and supply chain industry. Terms such as Advanced Manufacturing, Smart Automation, and Industry 4.0 all describe the intersection of automated systems and computer networks. While many routine jobs have become automated, there are new high-paying jobs being created to design, program, and maintain these systems. You can start your career in this growing field today!

We are working closely with local employers to build apprenticeships for our students. Many students are gaining employment, including tuition sponsorship, before they even complete their program of study at Sinclair!

Sinclair is on the move, and at the community's request we have invested in and delivered many new workforce-aligned programs of study. We're especially thrilled to announce our new Smart Manufacturing programs at the Mason campus. Once again, Sinclair is "finding the need, and endeavoring to meet it" in our local community.
