As the technologies advance and industries begin to integrate them into their business processes, employers’ needs shift. Employers increasingly strive to hire those with knowledge of advanced technological processes like automation, human-machine interfacing, and big data. They want employees who can implement and troubleshoot new technical processes and therefore look to hire those who have demonstrated uniquely human skills like teamwork, critical thinking, and change management. Many institutions currently struggle to understand the most impactful ways to adjust and change academic programming to keep pace with these technological advancements, however.

Sessions

This roundtable series will begin with an in-depth explainer of the impacts of Digital Revolution technologies across industries and what opportunities exist for institutions to imbue academic programming with in-demand technical skills. Furthermore, this roundtable will help partners understand the impacts of these new technologies and identify what opportunities exist to embed cutting-edge technological skills across disciplines

The Smart Manufacturing series will explore the impacts of technological advancements on the manufacturing sector to help partners determine where to launch new programs or augment existing ones across multiple disciplines, including engineering, business, and IT. Smart manufacturing is one of the most disrupted industries given the current and potential impacts of Digital Revolution technologies and the subsequent changes in employer needs. This roundtable series will help partners identify where there are opportunities to embed manufacturing skills or develop manufacturing programs. Partners will receive action support to determine where to launch new programs and what existing programs to augment.

All series will include didactic and interactive portions.
