SME Webinar on Transforming the High-tech Educational Pipeline

Reading time ( words)

The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Tampa Bay Florida Suncoast Chapter 159 will be holding a webinar titled “Transforming the High Tech Educational Pipeline."

The free webinar will be presented by Tom Borkes, founder of The Jefferson Project, and will be held from Tuesday through Thursday, August 20–22. Multiple viewing times are available.

This webinar analyzes the traditional role the educational system plays in making a student ready for a real-world career and the widening gap in product design, engineering, and manufacturing. The webinar asserts that to be most effective in a globally competitive, cost-sensitive environment, students need to be introduced to product design, engineering, and production when they enter the educational pipeline and continue to be exposed to elements of the ever-changing technology as they move along through the pipeline’s primary segment.
