The recession has decimated many fields, but the manufacturing sector -- once given up for dead -- is making a big comeback, thanks in part to a revived U.S. auto industry.

It's greatest among computer-controlled machine tool operators, an occupation that now has more workers than in 2007, according to a new study by Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. and CareerBuilder (an AOL Jobs sponsor). Machinists, engine assemblers and other production jobs also are on the upswing, nearing their pre-recession employment levels.
