Description

Over the past several months, MIT has conducted a series of surveys to determine the level of collaboration between community colleges and the manufacturing industry. From those surveys, the research team has prepared a report on what is being taught, how educators and employers are engaging, and how they can improve their alignment. This research is part of an innovative project, MassBridge, to design and launch innovative advanced manufacturing programs in community colleges. Join the co-authors for a discussion on their findings, and a Q&A session to help bridge the education and workforce gap.
