The signs cannot be more visible, the world of work is being reviewed, by all sides, from the rights of workers, from competition for markets to productivity and innovation, topics that gravitate strongly at the time of Define future economic scenarios at any level and in all areas, from small businesses to transnational’s. However, in the last line, the point of support is in the ability of people to do what is required in adapting to that new universe.
The training in the industry should be seen as the acquisition of knowledge that will contribute to the development of the engineer and performance in their respective work, benefits for the company, and obtaining better results. Therefore, training is the most effective means to ensure the proper training of engineers concerning the job functions they must perform, and with the jobs, they occupy or occupy. Through this process, not only the correct fulfilment of tasks and activities is guaranteed, but also the development of personnel and the company can be promoted.
Because of the above, the training of engineers is indispensable because of the speed of changes and the progress of technology. This training must be in harmony with real needs, directly related to the ability to compete in quality and price, efficiency, and reliability. In the same way, the competences for the work of the next decades, forms of work that at this moment do not exist, but that are glimpsed, replacing traditional jobs that will no longer be necessary.
Industry-driven training is anyway timely and necessary, and its ultimate goal has been described as the objective of increasing the competitiveness of companies and the employability of people, what is wanted achieve through “the application of public policies and instruments for the market for job training and intermediation, linked to a process of ongoing training.”

The concrete fact that technologies require new forms of training, which in everyday reality need qualified technicians, with new skills and competencies work, organizations, people, are mutating towards a new structure cannot be ignored. The new demands will include continuous learning, the ability to rethink and re-invent one’s work, adaptation, creation, and almost constant mobility, a present and inevitable challenge.
- Training for the engineer is always necessary, but in a country like ours, in which the unemployment rates are still very high and in which a significant part of the unemployed do not have an essential qualification that favours their insertion in the world labour is necessary.
- Industry-driven training requires that public-private collaboration be “much stronger” for the tremendous economic crisis that has also touched “decisively” to this sector “be left behind.” Stability is “key” to be able to design, primarily when it depends on public policies.
- Industry-driven training facilitates the orientation of the students and the necessary investments by the service provider companies training to meet these training demands with quality and through transparent and competitive processes.
