Assemblers are highly technical workers with strong engineering backgrounds who receive and conceptualize designs to create a physical model of the desired product. This hands-on role requires workers to understand and utilize complex designs and follow specific design specifications to ensure a product is designed effectively. Many assemblers work in the aerospace industry, although any industry that requires the production of physical products may require and hire assemblers.
Assemblers require a high school diploma or equivalent (such as a G.E.D.) at a minimum. A Bachelor's degree in mechanical or electrical engineering may be preferred for some positions. As this role requires the use of different mechanical equipment, different certificates will be required for most assembler roles. Such certificates can often be obtained through specialized training schools. Assemblers may also need a security clearance to work on government contracts.
