2022 GEDC Industry Forum WEBINAR

State of the art in university–industry relations to prepare the engineer of the future

Skills and Talent

We heard from Dora Smith at Siemens Digital Industries Software who came fresh from her role as co-chair and host at the recent ASEE Industry 4.0 Workforce Summit. Dora shared her main insights from the event which gathered leading representatives from this community across North America to look at the adaptations and activities required to meet the pace of change in the engineering landscape. We then heard from Jan Quint at Elsevier whose work with industry, academic institutions and government across Europe, the Middle East and Latin America added an other dynamic perspective. Dr. Sushma Kulkarni, Director of Rajarambapu Institute of Technology and recognised as one of the 100 Most Influential Directors of India (Education) by the World Education Congress also joined us to complete this global discussion.
