Industry 4.0 workshop

Join us for a one-day workshop with national industry partners and National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Grand Challenges Scholars Program (GCSP) leaders about shaping our future engineering leaders!

Engineering and HR Professionals: Learn about the Fourth Industrial Revolution, known as Industry 4.0, from thought leaders and discuss how it impacts the necessary skill set of future engineers. Explore how NAE GCSP and entrepreneurially-minded education can help in preparing future engineers that can thrive in the uncertainties of Industry 4.0, and discuss how industry and academic institutions can work together to build and utilize this talent pipeline.

Our workshop includes a panel of experts who will discuss the dawning of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, termed Industry 4.0, and its dynamic and disruptive nature fueled by the interactions of digital, physical, and human factors with significant implications for industry and future technologies. Discussion will follow to address three key issues: 1) how universities can adapt to better meet industry needs and effectively prepare and transition future knowledge workers; 2) challenges and opportunities connecting with specialized talent, specifically Grand Challenge Scholars; and, 3) new talent partnership models aimed at producing actionable next steps
