Welcome to the Electric Vehicles Battery Tech USA Exhibition and Conference where electric vehicle battery technology innovators will meet with leading automotive manufacturers to explore new battery technologies and battery management systems for use in next-generation electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles.

It has long been said that at four-year institutions, faculty have to publish or perish; at two-year institutions that requirement is not as stringent but could be helpful to faculty progression. The MNT-EC Journal Working Group would like to help faculty at a two-year institution become more familiar on how to do research and write a journal article for publication. As faculty at two-year institutes increase their familiarity in this area, they can share this experience with their students. The students can gain research and writing skills that can serve them if they choose to transfer to a four-year institution.

Because mobility technology spans multiple disciplines, industries and applications, it’s imperative that you connect yearly with the brightest minds in propulsion, autonomous vehicles, smart architecture, automotive manufacturing and systems engineering.

The WCX World Congress Experience Digital Summit is where you’ll overcome mobility’s biggest hurdles from developmental timelines for autonomous vehicles and new technologies to global supply chain constraints impacting the automotive industry.

With both live and on-demand sessions, you’ll make the most of your time by getting up to speed on the latest breakthroughs while building your expertise on a schedule that works for you.

Educators at all levels desire for their students to succeed. For Community College educators teaching technical education course success is often defined as “graduates getting jobs”. Achievement of this goal is often tied to having a direct correlation between the student outcomes from the courses in the program and the industry requirements for new hires at a technician level. Industry participation in CC technical education programs is critical to ensure this correlation and also provide students with insight into the career environment and the myriad of opportunities available. This workshop will focus on a three-step process that educators can follow to prepare them to 1) successfully execute the initial contact with industry 2) be prepared for a “face to face” meeting with an industry person and 3) invite the participation of the industry/company as a supporting participant in the technician program. During the workshop, the participants will walk through the process for their particular technical education program and industry segment. Workshop results will be a checklist of items to complete and various suggestions as well as the first draft of the content that will go on a “blank sheet of paper”.

EvaluATE webchats are an opportunity for small groups of ATE evaluation community members to come together to share and learn from each other in real-time. Anyone interested in evaluation is welcome to attend. Participants are encouraged to turn on their webcams and join in the conversation, offering a great opportunity to network.
