Building and maintaining a quality workforce has been a longtime struggle for the industrial manufacturing space, and the COVID-19 pandemic only exacerbated the need for highly skilled engineers. In this episode of Manufacturing Matters, TECH B2B’s David Dechow sits down with Dr. Khalid Mirza, director of the Immersive Center & Robotics Lab at Oakland University, to share how the school’s industrial robotics program is graduating well-rounded engineering students who are prepared for careers in advanced manufacturing. 

Oakland University’s industrial robotics program began three years ago and includes partnerships with several major robotics companies, who advise curriculum and provide equipment. The program includes general engineering theory education, combined with hands-on labs for students to learn the skills needed to excel in today, and tomorrow’s, manufacturing applications.
