In response to the high demand for specialised skills from companies who are looking to the academic world to recruit new resources, in the 2020/2021 school year, Mitsubishi Electric's Factory Automation division held over 20 training events involving around 660 students from eight Italian regions.
In Italy, there is a high demand for specialised skills from companies, which are looking to the academic world to recruit new resources.
At Mitsubishi Electric Italian Branch, we have been promoting various educational activities for years, with the aim of providing boys and girls with technical knowledge and skills in preparation for a professional career.
In the 2020/2021 school year, our Factory Automation division organised more than 20 training events, including classroom courses and webinars, in collaboration with higher technical institutes, ITS, training bodies and universities, involving around 660 students from eight Italian regions (Abruzzo, Emilia-Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Lombardy, Piedmont, Apulia, Sardinia, Veneto).
A training programme with a strong empirical component and a focus on robotics which, in line with the pandemic situation, was delivered both on-line and face-to-face, driven by the awareness that the contribution of young people will be fundamental to Italy's recovery and that it is therefore necessary to equip them with key skills required by companies.
The organised courses are part of a wider project - Mitsubishi Electric AcadeMy Education - an educational path for high school and university students created by the Factory Automation Division with the aim of sharing technological know-how to train the talents of tomorrow.
