Our goal was not only to attract future graduates to join FERMAT’s growing workforce at its manufacturing and production facilities in Brno or Lipnik nad Becvou, but also to motivate students entering the academy to choose the rewarding field of machine tools, machining, and metalwork.

Increasing demand for skilled workers and rising wages make this field very attractive.  It offers gainful employment, good pay and better long-term security than many other careers.  Graduates are not saddled with debt and, in a short time, they can be comfortably middle-class, especially when combined with business acumen and ingenuity.

As seen in the charts below, even for the US market, manufacturing is not dead and the need for skilled machinists sets a good livelihood for blue-collar workers.  And, any increase in manufacturing and metalwork will push the pay scale higher.
