[A couple years ago, the PTC Academic Program asked some of our most esteemed customers to reflect on the “skills gap” in engineering. We wanted to know what was missing when fresh graduates showed up on the company’s doorstep. What more could universities be doing to prepare the next generation of product developers? Many of the answers we received are still as relevant today as they were back then. With school starting up again, it’s a good time to revisit these now-classic posts as you choose your courses and extracurricular projects for the year. ]
Ask five different employers what they want from their recent mechanical engineering college graduates, and you might get five different answers. It all depends on the company and who’s doing the hiring.
