Demand for college-educated employees is on the rise

Demand for college-educated employees is on the rise, a trend that can be a mixed bag for job hunters.

From 1967 to 2007, the share of high-skill managerial and professional jobs rose from 21 percent to 35 percent of U.S. employment, according to a new report from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce. Over the same period, the report noted, the share of college-educated workers rose from 13 percent to 32 percent, and those workers are producing more than half of the country’s economic output.

“For those who get a post-secondary education, and who get it in the right field, it’s a very positive story,” said Anthony P. Carnevale, the center’s director and lead author of the report.

National Robotics Week: igus Celebrates with Robot Block Party

We will be there.  Will you?

From Design News:

At the end of this week, which is National Robotics Week 2015, igus will celebrate by exhibiting at the Rhode Island Robot Block Party. The plastic bearings leader — which also makes cables, cable carriers, linear bearings, and linear guides — will demonstrate its robot-related products at the event and provide robot giveaways to lucky winners during the event on Saturday, April 11.

The second-annual Robot Block Party will take place at Brown University’s Pizzitola Sports Center, between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. It’s hosted by the Rhode Island School of the Future and the Humanity Centered Robotics Initiative at Brown. The non-profit Rhode Island Students of the Future uses youth robotics to engage young people in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and manufacturing through youth robotics.

More than 50 hands-on exhibits, demonstrations, and displays will be available at the party from schools, universities, companies, and non-profit organizations around the area, including Brown, the New England Institute of Technology, and Hasbro’s Animatronics Lab. Although this is a STEM event, all ages are welcome. The demonstrations and exhibit are focused on helping everyone, not just kids, discover how robots are being used in education, toy design, and manufacturing. You can find out more about the event and register for free tickets here.

Temporary closure of part of New England Tech Blvd

Beginning on Monday, April 13, 2015, the section of New England Tech Boulevard located at the midway point turn (the “CVS” entrance/exit off of South County Trail) will be closed to through traffic for approximately one week.  This closure will allow for the extension of new underground utilities to other parts of the campus in preparation for future development. 

During this time, access into and egress from the EG Campus will be limited to Division Road only, either by the main entrance (near the roundabout) or by the west entrance, just beyond the building on Division Road. 

Additional excavation work is planned, beginning within the next week or so, which will partially restrict traffic flow along New England Tech Boulevard over a longer period.  A separate notice will be distributed once a start date for this next segment has been finalized.
