Manufacturing methods are advancing through sensors, automation, connected devices, and smart use of data. This improves the performance of manufacturing lines but demands more from the workers on the line. Unfortunately, manufacturing education has not kept up.  

In this webinar, we shared findings from a study of current practices in advanced manufacturing education. Drawing on case studies and an analysis of more than 1,000 courses and certifications around the United States, we share best practices for what advanced manufacturing workers need to know, and how to create an advanced manufacturing education ecosystem that works.

This webinar also serves as a preview for virtual summit “Bridging the Education/Workforce Gap: Community College and Beyond” co-hosted by Open Learning and MassBridge on July 27-28, 2021.
