Industry Input 4/22/2003 13 industries represented plus Auburn University, Auburn Chamber of Commerce, City of Auburn, Auburn City Schools and Southern Union State Community College 2-hour meeting – Auburn City Hall Annex Over 55 knowledge/skill items discussed as needed for the industry group.
Assumptions The focus of the skill set is on the needs of existing industry. Although each employer is concerned about their individual workforce needs, initially the skill set will focus on the job concentrations that employ the largest numbers of workers. Occupational and technical skills are important, however Auburn industry encourages primary emphasis and priority on enhancing basic academic and employability knowledge and skills. Learning outcomes must articulate with additional 2- year and 4-year education opportunities.
What are the Specifics of Auburns Industry? What is the nature of Auburn industry? What are the dominate manufacturing processes? What are the dominate job concentrations? What are the dominate materials used? What are the most recruited jobs?
