In this episode we hear three different perspectives in a strategic partnership that is developing the pipeline of technicians for one of the most advanced manufacturing facilities, a semiconductor foundry.
Hear about how industry partners are working with community colleges to identify skills gaps and empower educators to align and adapt existing coursework to address those skills gaps. How is this relationship empowering educators to have their finger on the pulse of industry demands so they can respond swiftly to the ever-expanding portfolio of cross-disciplinary skills a technician will need?
[I]t’s not really a “how do we create it?” It’s how do we take what they’re already doing, and almost “tune it” to what we’re looking for.
