The current state of manufacturing in the US is no longer the dark, dirty and repetitive manufacturing of the past. Industry 4.0 has transformed todays workers to become highly educated with rewarding careers. Re-tooling adults to take advantage of this transformation will be challenging and the importance of advanced curriculums and certifications will be required to stay competitive. This discussion will focus on the current state of manufacturing education and provide resources to Industry 4.0 programs available in the educational community.
