Average Mean Salary


Hawkeye Community College

The Bureau of Labor statistics predicts a 23% increase in manufacturing jobs over the next four years, and Iowa is home to 5,960 manufacturing firms.

With its main campus in Waterloo, Hawkeye Community College offers manufacturing training to help you gain exciting and well-paying careers in the industrial sector. There is a resurging national demand for industrial jobs, and Iowa has a bright outlook for growth in that area.

The Cedar Valley has a large concentration of jobs in the manufacturing sector and not enough skilled employees to meet them. The Iowa Workforce Development estimates that there are more entry-level workers than jobs available. However, there are more middle-skill level jobs available than workers to fill them.  You can qualify for one of these middle-skilled jobs by simply taking a one- to two-year course of study in Industrial and Engineering Technology at Hawkeye Community College.
