Micron - Tomas Frier
As large scale manufacturing migrates to economies that can support cheaper labour and materials, engineers need to change how they work and think. Engineering needs to become a service based economy aimed at efficiently leveraging these international manufacturing economies. This can only be done if people understand design for manufacture, which as manufacturing declines, becomes a harder skill to learn.
The solution is to train young engineers in a practical and interactive manner with new technologies that allow for them to not only understand the nature of manufacturing in the modern world, but also reinstate the hands on and practical experience learning that our parents had.
By leveraging interactive technologies like augmented reality, the Micron is able to show students lessons in real time and in the real work environment without having to leave the classroom.
The Micron, hands on education for the modern engineering student.
