There is an emerging worldwide trend of IIoT-focused curriculum growth within leading colleges and universities, resulting from increasingly complex manufacturing operations and the skills gap shortages in the industry. As such, educators are rapidly seeking to motivate and prepare students for careers in the field.
BYU has a long history of manufacturing academia and has done a tremendous job of positioning the school as a place that is molding the next generations of IIoT industry leaders. By implementing PTC technology into our classrooms, we’re providing students with the real-world training and skills that organizations are looking for – meaning the learning curve upon hire is much shorter and less of a resource drain. BYU and PTC are partnering on something that we believe is making a real-world impact and helping shape students’ futures.Yuri Hovanski, Associate Professor of Manufacturing Engineering, Bringham Young University
