Challenge your mind
Brose supports the continued learning of its employees, and we take an active role in developing the skills of future engineers and professionals. We offer tuition reimbursement for continuing education, scholarship programs, as well as a rich array of training opportunities for our employees. We also partner with schools in our communities to mentor students and build their skills in manufacturing and STEM. In addition, Brose provides real-world learning opportunities to students in our workplace through internships, apprenticeships, and co-op programs.
FIRST Robotics Involvement
In partnership with different high schools in our community, Brose North America sponsors FIRST Robotics teams. Brose employee mentors volunteer their time and technical skills to teach local students about programming, design, and mechatronics. With support from their Brose mentors, our different teams have qualified for the World Championship in Texas and the top 20% at Michigan’s FIRST Robotics State Championship.
Brose sponsors and collaborates with Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) Formula SAE team, a program that challenges university students to conceive, design, fabricate, and compete with small formula-style racing cars. The SVSU team secured a position in the top 25% during the final competition held at the Michigan International Speedway in 2023.
Brose North America is a long-time supporter of Manufacturing Day, an event that promotes manufacturing careers to high school students. All of our Michigan facilities host Manufacturing Day events every year in partnership with their local school districts.We welcome local high school students to let them experience life in a production facility and to generate interest in manufacturing careers from a young age. Students participate in interactive learning activities and tour our manufacturing floors.
