Presentation:

Industry 4.0 (Internet of Things, Big Data, and SMART Factories) 

The common thread of the presentation will be addressing the skills gap by aligning industry needs with educational outcomes. Current companies as well as new companies like FOXCONN need workers that are capable of working in smart factories. Come and see how Gateway is helping people gain these skills as they partner with companies to help the entire community.
