Carving the path to civilian life
Massachusetts native Omar Infante is winding down his 17 years of service with the U.S. military. He is beginning a new career in manufacturing. But with no industry experience, the Fort Drum-based soldier needed a primer.
Through UB’s online Digital Manufacturing and Design Technology specialization courses, Infante is gaining deep insight into the digital age of manufacturing, known as Industry 4.0. The courses are also giving him a boost of confidence as he transitions to a production supervisor role at the startup LC Drives in Potsdam, N.Y.
“The courses are helping me develop a holistic understanding of manufacturing and where it needs to go in the future,” Infante says.
