SOMERVILLE, MA: Tulip is launching “Tulip University” the first of its kind online training program to teach the manufacturing workforce how to develop manufacturing apps. Enrollment is open to all and 100% free of charge.
Frontline workers in manufacturing need to have access to training and skills development materials in order to keep up in a new era. With Tulip University, the company is democratizing access to gaining knowledge and technology training that is useful and easily shareable.
After deploying Tulip’s software and hardware at hundreds of customer sites, Tulip has developed a formula that will help any manufacturer digitize their shop floor. The company is sharing that methodology in a series of courses, exercises, and quizzes via Tulip University. These interactive, multimedia courses give manufacturers tangible, hands on opportunities to learn the material and work with digital manufacturing technologies.
The initial certification covers how to build manufacturing apps, deploy them in production, leverage IoT connections, across 7 courses. Course offerings will grow to include advanced applications and approaches over time. Digital knowledge shared via free courses is a significant step towards guaranteeing that everyone in manufacturing who wants to learn digital techniques has the resources to do so.
“Empowering front line workers is a guiding principle behind everything we do at Tulip, says Tulip CEO Natan Linder. “After speaking with manufacturing leaders from around the world, it was clear that open, digital resources are key to solving the growing skills gap. Tulip University is a huge step forward and represents our commitment to helping the industry with this challenge,” he says.
Tulip University includes free access to Tulip’s no-code platform as well as the user community. Participants can connect with and learn from other forward-looking manufacturing engineers and enthusiasts from around the world.
Tulip, the Manufacturing App Platform, is being used by some of the world’s leading manufacturers to increase the productivity, quality, and efficiency of their operations. Started out of MIT, the company is headquartered in Somerville, MA, with offices in Europe. Tulip is a member of the World Economic Forum’s Future of Work taskforce.
