    Abstract

    The companies that participate in the Joint Arizona Consortium for Manufacturing and Engineering Education for Tomorrow (JACME 2T) have expressed concern about the preparation process for future Chief Engineers and other technical leaders. There are two principal factors: the current generation is approaching retirement and the challenges of future technology demand an even greater combination of breadth and depth of understanding. A series of short courses has been prepared to address some of the skills required by potential chief engineers. The courses can be taken individually or they can be combined into a non-academic certificate. To formulate the certificate requirements, we followed the methodology used by the participating companies to design complex products. A detailed evaluation of the chief engineer job specification and skills led to an analysis of best practice and courses already available to JACME 2T and the companies. The translation into specific course modules was undertaken by the authors and with additional contributions from academic and industry experts. The full certificate will be delivered in 2004 and it has potential to be extended as a component of a distance MS degree within the Arizona universities.
