Survey says engineers expect change after pandemic

According to a recent survey conducted by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 8 out of 10 engineers anticipate a change in operations due to the pandemic.

Owed to this escalation of change, ASME has begun offering flexible, affordable and applicable virtual training solutions to help engineers strengthen their skills for both the current and post-pandemic workplace.

ASME CEO and Executive Director Tom Costabile said the already-rapidly evolving engineering work landscape has been accelerated in its changes because of COVID-19.

“Engineers are applying technologies including artificial intelligence, robotics and 3D printing to help respond to the public health crisis, and also to adapt processes in many industrial sectors and transform supply chains for the future,” said Mr Costabile.

Many courses featured in ASME’s current training portfolio are based on the application of ASME codes and standards while others include opportunities for advancing engineering technology.

By offering these courses online, ASME said it can fulfill the need to deliver vital learning information faster, smarter and in a more convenient way to engineers.
