Overview

When: June 18-19, 2009 (Thurs/Fri) - after ASEE - Special Meetings Saturday June 20, 2009

Where: Radisson Austin, Texas (http://www.radisson.com/austintx)

There has been massive change in global manufacturing professions. Many skills taught a decade ago are now obsolete and have been replaced by a number of new demands that are as yet inconsistently addressed by educators. These changes have resulted in a new urgency to keep manufacturing education healthy and forward focused. However, the core of the manufacturing engineering field continues to be essential to success and growth of industries worldwide.

Issues that must be addressed in this summit from a strategic position are;

  • Why is transformation necessary in manufacturing education?
  • What kind of transformation is necessary?
  • Who has the power/responsibility for effecting the transformation?
  • How can the transformation be accomplished?

A program-driven summit is planned, presenting a mix of invited speakers, contributed peer reviewed presentations, and panel discussions. Participants from outside academia are an integral part of these activities in helping to identify new problems and opportunities that shape the direction of the transformation.

The Summit follows a pair of Manufacturing Education Leadership Forums where the future of manufacturing education was examined with the viewpoint of providing stronger support to manufacturers in the U.S. and worldwide. The summit is structured to build upon those earlier events, encourage additional discussion and interaction, and empower decision makers to implement improvements in manufacturing education.

Themes

  1. Pipeline, imaging and marketing issues in manufacturing education
    • Goal: A Collective plan for recruitment and attraction of new entrants to our industry as Students, Skilled Workers, and Retrainees.
  2. Strategic policy issues and partnering for manufacturing education.
    • Goal: To develop a set of strategies and policies to be used to further manufacturing education by summit participants and other stakeholders.
  3. Emerging technologies, techniques, and pedagogy and how to integrate them into manufacturing education
    • Goal: Shared knowledge that will allow educators to redesign and update their curriculum.

Summit Outcomes

The summit will provide a select number of presentations and keynote addresses to inspire and charge the summit participants for action. Within the summit and through follow-on efforts, prepare, present, and promulgate a designed interdisciplinary roadmap to guide manufacturing education stakeholders to meet the post-secondary workforce needs of the global enterprises of the future. Stakeholders include society-at-large, industry, academia, government, economic development groups, professional societies, and industry associations.
