There is always shortage of skilled people in the industry, composites technical talent shortage looming globally.
The need for lighter weight automobiles, to meet fuel economy and CO2 emission targets, is stimulating innovation and investment across the globe in advanced composites. Clean energy sources, such as wind turbines, are becoming increasingly competitive with fossil fuels, and are creating enormous demand for resins, fiberglass and carbon fiber. Forecasts in these key applications call for double-digit growth for many years as composites become ubiquitous.
There also will be a huge demand for trained composites technicians, manufacturing engineers and designers able to avoid the “black metal” approach to structural analysis. Where will we find the people to design the components and assemblies, run the manufacturing equipment, and repair the resulting parts when they are damaged?
We have established first FRP Institute in Pakistan for Fiberglass product design to Mass production skills and to encourage the Entrepreneurship mindset in the next generation. Some of the basic trainings in the following parameters:
