This moment will go down in history. 

Engineering is at a crossroads. This includes its practice in the workplace—and how it’s taught in the classroom. New technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), nanofabrication, and the internet of things (IoT) have shifted the engineering landscape.

This is THE opportunity to bring a strong lineup of the right voices from academia and industry together to come up with actionable outcomes to implement during this, the most fluid state of education in centuries. Schools are at a crossroads, let’s give them a roadmap.

This industry-wide web series is designed to guide schools to prepare engineering and technology students for The Fourth Industrial Revolution. The goal is to reach a consensus on improvements to curricula, work-based experiences, policies, and practices. This historic event promises to be productive and engaging.

The time is now!
