During lunch join Mike Nager as he dives deeper discussing:

Advanced and Agile Manufacturing programs need to go beyond the basics of CNC, PLC and robot programming. Concepts such as Industry 4.0 requires a skill set that is best described as a ‘systems’ approach and incorporate technologies that weren’t even dreamed of a few years ago. Far from being dark, dangerous and dirty the reality of today’s Advanced Manufacturing requires new and diverse skills. What are those skills and how are the education and manufacturing industries working together to build the workforce of the future? Let’s explore what is and can be done in NJ to close the skills gap.
