The groundbreaking Future of the Technician Workforce Study by MCC's Economic and Workforce Development Center sheds light on most-in-demand skills and what the future of work looks like in the Finger Lakes region over the next five years and beyond as current and emerging technologies--including artificial intelligence and virtual reality-- transform businesses' operations.

The study is based on extensive input from over 100 industry professionals from 80 organizations representing four sectors across the region at a fall 2019 strategic planning workshop.
