“Technical skills are important, but without employability skills,
technical skills are merely commodities. Employability skills
turn intellectual commodities into intellectual capital.”

Working Groups
The collaboration of the Manufacturing and Cyber Security Working Groups will be essential to the curriculum development process


Development Teams
Each sector's working group will have six development teams. Each team will consist of a faculty member and an employer tasked with joint development of one integrated curriculum project.

Team Member Roles
The employers on the teams will provide authentic industry scenarios to set the context for the integrated project. The faculty members on the teams will serve as the instructional designers. Both in-person and virtual collaboration events will be held to facilitate this work and a robust online environment for content development will be employed.
