ASEE PRESENTS PREPARING THE WORKFORCE FOR INDUSTRY 4.0
Engineering is at a crossroads, from how it’s practiced in industry to how it’s taught in the classroom. New technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), nanofabrication, and the internet of things (IoT) have all shifted the engineering landscape. This event features a series of TED-like talks from industry and academic leaders, a member of the National Science Board, and other luminaries. This is THE opportunity to bring voices from academia and industry together to imagine and implement actionable outcomes during the most fluid state of education in centuries. Schools are at a crossroads, so let’s give them a roadmap. This moment will
go down in history. Don’t miss it!
The event will take place in-person at Washington DC’s Historic Omni Shoreham Hotel, October 13–14, 2021. Register at the early-bird rate of $395. Visit the project website. We have reserved a block of rooms at the Omni Shoreham, with a single rate of $269 per night. Book rooms.
