Technical Competencies – A Versatile Framework for Learning Practical Knowledge
written by Randall Tagg
Students need a wide array of practical skills and knowledge in order to pursue advanced laboratory work, research, innovation, and technical jobs in industry. This knowledge begins with tool and shop use and extends to a capacity for basic electronics design, construction, and testing. Beyond these common skills, students need to come up to speed quickly on specialized techniques specific to a particular problem: examples include vacuum technique, plumbing, use and calibration of sensors, motor control, pneumatic actuators, etc. We provide a physical inventory, a web site, and a learning model that provides access to an expanding array of practical knowledge topics. The goal of this ongoing project is to develop a versatile framework for students to obtain and certify a personal repertoire of technical competencies.
