We’ve encountered a lot of drastic changes in the way we work, live, and learn. Siemens still invests in education and connect students to cutting edge automation technologies through programs like Siemens Cooperates with Education.
SCE provides tools for educators around manufacturing and digitalization
Industry 4.0 is changing manufacturing through advanced technologies and digitalization. (Even after writing this, I saw an article already on Industry 5.0)! On top of this shift, manufacturers are losing tenured employees and do not have enough talent to fill open positions. Public and private partnerships are essential to excite the next generation in STEM careers and to prepare these students with the right skills to fulfill the needs of future employers.
To keep the manufacturing industry strong, students must obtain high-level skills in automation, programming, and digitalization. Education institutions must adapt their curriculum to encompass training in these areas to adequately prepare them for their careers. Educators can accomplish this in close cooperation with organizations within the industry.
Siemens is committed to preparing the next generation of workers. With programs like Siemens Cooperates with Education (SCE), Siemens works with educators to provide hands on experiences with technologies that are used in manufacturing operations around the world. Students benefit from gaining experience and knowledge on these technologies that can be directly transferred to their manufacturing career.
