IMT and its schools are transforming their engineering programs to meet the needs of new industry professions
As a founding member of the AIF (Alliance for the Industry of the Future), IMT is participating in the Dare to Enter the Industry of the Future project along with UIMM, ENSAM, and ONISEP. Together, they will explore how digital transformations are impacting industry professions in an effort to anticipate and support companies’ new needs for skills and qualifications.
Through the Dare to Enter the Industry of the Future project, IMT is leading a drive for action across its network (schools, affiliated schools) and developing new initial and continuing training programs dedicated to the “industry of the future.”
“Dare to Enter the Industry of the Future” project
The industrial metamorphosis driven by digital and new technologies will lead to profound changes in professions and qualifications.
The Dare to Enter the Industry of the Future project is aimed at supporting these changes:
- By improving the image of industry and its professions in the employment market
- By promoting access to industry professions for everyone
- By strengthening exchanges between young people/companies
A 3-stage project
- Stage 1: Create a set of job descriptions that identify the impacts of digital technology and the most significant changes
- Stage 2: Produce ready-to-use skills kits for developing new training programs, aimed at public and private training institutions
- Stage 3: Create a web portal to serve as a gateway to information about different professions, training programs and job offers
