What will be covered in the workshops?

We have tailored the curriculum of each workshop to the specific needs of NYC manufacturers within advanced materials, digital manufacturing and robotics.  We have conducted an extensive citywide manufacturer survey, obtaining input from over 150 manufacturers, to make sure the topics covered during the workshops are the ones that matter the most to our manufacturers. Please send us suggestions of topics that matter to you at Futureworks@itac.nyc.
