Aspen Technology to address generational workforce shifts

Aspen Technology has introduced an industry domain training programme for companies in asset-intensive industries who are onboarding recently-graduated engineers. The programme is designed to enable new process engineers, control engineers, reliability engineers, supply chain planners, cost estimators and others to build industry-specific competencies within each of these roles.

AspenTech created the programme to help industrial companies navigate considerable gaps in industry domain knowledge as specialised senior engineers retire and a new generation enters the workforce. For example, a recent survey entitled Gaps in the Energy Workforce, conducted by the Centre for Energy Workforce Development, reported that there is a considerable increase in younger populations (younger than 32) within the energy workforce, including 43% of technicians and 25% of engineers.

David Reumuth, Senior Director, Customer Support and Training, AspenTech, said: “To keep up with a dramatically shifting workforce and the related market demands, it is crucial that companies build and retain organisational competency. In 2022, AspenTech introduced a sustainability-specific training programme. This is now complemented with a broader curriculum that prepares new engineers to more quickly develop industry-specific competencies required to succeed in the process industries. This programme helps companies achieve operational excellence and positions their new-generation workforce to address their operational business challenges.”

The curriculum was designed to offer integrated process, refining, and chemicals domain practice for a holistic, real-world learning experience. More than 1000 users from 150+ companies across the globe have already completed the training.

The initial curriculum is available in both virtual and live classroom settings and all courses are led by industry domain experts. Participants gain process-specific knowledge required for their roles and have the opportunity to consult with industry experts about their unique process challenges.
