Competencies in Transition ​​

Being aware that technological know-how changes from year to year, young people as well as professionals need to update their skills on a permanent basis. As a globally networked education partner with industrial DNA, we translate current and future competency requirements from industry and educational institutions into competency diagrams that make these changes visible and help educators to identify necessary qualification needs. The competency diagram of a mechatronics technician, for example, indicates that new technologies and soft skills expand ever more in comparison to the traditional mechanical engineering and automation fundamentals. Furthermore, a noticeable shift towards information technology is evident.
