Martin A. Schmidt
Provost, MIT
Martin A. Schmidt received his B.S. degree from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1981 and his S.M. and Ph.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1983 and 1988, respectively. He joined the MIT faculty in 1988 in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department. From 1999 to 2006, he served as the director of the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL) at MIT. MTL is an interdepartmental laboratory that provides shared research infrastructure for all of the campus' activities in micro and nanotechnology and supports the research of approximately 500 students and staff.
In February 2014, he was appointed provost of MIT. Beginning in 2008, he served as associate provost, managing the Institute's space and the renovation/renewal budgets. Since January 2012, he also assumed responsibilities for "all things industry" as the senior administrative officer responsible for MIT's industrial interactions. In this capacity, the Technology Licensing Office and Office of Corporate Relations report to him. Beyond his regular responsibilities, he also co-led the Institute's Task Force on the Budget in response to the 2008 financial crisis. He has played an active role as MIT's faculty lead in support of the MIT president's role as co-chair of the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP), a national effort bringing together the federal government, industry, universities, and other stakeholders to identify and invest in emerging technologies with the potential to create high-quality domestic manufacturing jobs and enhance the global competitiveness of the United States. Lastly, he served as one of the 20 faculty members on the MIT Production in the Innovation Economy (PIE) study, a two-year study focused on understanding the critical linkage of production to the innovation process. The PIE work resulted in two books published by the MIT Press.
He is a recipient of the National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award and has an honorary doctorate from the Technical University of Denmark. He was elected as a fellow of the IEEE in 2004 for contributions to design and fabrication of microelectromechanical systems. He has received the Ruth and Joel Spira Teaching Award and the Eta Kappa Nu Teaching Award at MIT.

Featuring presentation of the 2011 C. Peter Mcgrath Award and keynote speech from Martin Schmidt
Martin Schmidt, Ph.D., professor of electrical engineering and computer science and the former director of the Microsystems Technology Laboratories at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, discussed the need for the United States to invest in advanced manufacturing. Recently, the President's Council of Advisors Science and Technology (PCAST) recommended a major effort to bring the federal government, universities, industry and other stakeholders together in order to respond to the need.
"In 1970, the United States manufactured 30 percent of the products made in the world; in 2008 we're down to 18 percent. The rising partner in this activity is China. In fact in 2011, China manufactured more projects than the U.S.," Schmidt said.
Wrapping up, Schmidt added: "There is a real big effort to reinvigorate workforce development in higher education with a focus on community colleges.  "But there are things we can do at the university level to get our students to make things again and it can be part of the curriculum.
