Infusing Industrial Tools & Criteria
into Academic Curriculum
September 25, 2019 at 12:00pm EDT
Changing demographics in the workplace are driving increased departure of highly-skilled engineers from the workforce. At the same time, emerging consumer applications of advanced technology are requiring new engineers with the ability to rapidly translate market concepts to manufactured products. These two forces create an impetus to evolve academic curriculum with industry tools and methods to facilitate a faster time-to-productivity for new engineers.
This presentation will discuss:
- The changing needs of industry
- The teaching curriculum that is available and different ways to include materials
- The benefits of Keysight’s RF/Microwave Courseware and Industry-Ready Student Certification program
