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.
