The pace of innovation is moving faster than ever before. With emerging technologies like machine learning, data analytics and open source software, the gap between research and productization of technology can be zero, for the first time in history. This leads to tremendous challenges and opportunities in the field of engineering today, in a wide range of areas from wireless mobility to cyber security. But innovation at this pace will increasingly demand a skillset that is somewhat different than has traditionally been required. What is that skillset for the next decade? And how can academia and industry collaborate to field a workforce that is prepared to tackle these challenges, and equipped to advance into leadership roles?
