Part 3 - Made in America - Advanced skills wanted
There’s no doubt that the Fourth Industrial Revolution will bring abundant change to many industries, however, none so much as manufacturing. With the blending of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things, big data and cloud computing, robotics, artificial-intelligence based systems and 3D printing, manufacturing will never be the same again as each of these advances penetrate every sector.
Along with the convergence comes the need for new types of jobs—including some that don’t yet exist. The website O*NET, an interactive application for exploring and searching occupations, lists all of these opportunities — which include manufacturing engineering technologists, manufacturing engineers and manufacturing production technicians — as “bright outlooks” and “new and emerging jobs.”
Additionally, skills to operate:
