Discipline Specific Skill Acquisition

Students sitting in technology classroomThe fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, is underway, and new interdisciplinary skills will be needed to grow with new technologies and be employed in this new era.

By mastering fundamental skills related to electrical, mechanical and mechatronics disciplines, and the emerging technology of electronics, Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud services, beginners will be able to provide solutions to industrial problems.

PNW is offering a ground-breaking apprenticeship-like program called Discipline Specific Skill Acquisition. Offered to freshmen students in mechanical, electrical, and mechatronics engineering technology programs, it allows participants to spend 20 hours per week on hands-on learning. The program spans two full semesters of mastering skills and one summer month of applying those skills completing a group project.
