Preparing Engineering for the Workforce of the Future

The objectives of this workshop are to: 1) have participants formulate traits of the engineer of the future; 2) identify tools and strategies for student success; 3) discuss the impact of current technologies, such as ChatGPT, on the learning process; and 4) participate in a hands-on group activity to scale potential strategies for your educational need.


How do we prepare students for jobs that do not yet exist, technologies not yet invented, and problems we are unaware of? How do current technologies, such as ChatGPT, impact the learning process? Increasing the success of students involves a complex network of strategies and tools. Through collaborative activities, workshop participants will develop actionable strategies during the workshop to implement specific to their level of students.
