Take the Quick Survey on Entry-Level Engineering Skills and Competencies

Please respond by Friday, April 7, 2017

Through its Curriculum Grants program, the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation is working to increase the amount of fluid power that is taught in undergraduate engineering programs. NFPA’s University Education Committee, which helps oversee the program, is seeking feedback from all NFPA members on the competencies and skill sets sought for entry-level engineers in their organizations.

The short survey can be accessed here:

Your responses will help the Committee set the direction for the program, ensuring that the most critical competencies and skill sets are included in the fluid power curriculum programs it develops.
