DMG MORI SEIKI USA Promotes Doug Pierce to Chief Learning Officer
DMG MORI SEIKI is pleased to announce Doug Pierce as the new Chief Learning Officer of DMG MORI SEIKI. In his new position, Pierce will oversee all functions of the online university (Education On Demand), instructor-led classes, and the apprentice programs of DMG / MORI SEIKI University (DMSU). Formerly, Pierce served as the Manager of Educational Operations.
“This opportunity is very exciting,” says Pierce. “What excites me most is the chance to build on a terrific foundation established at the University by Rod Jones and the rest of the staff here at DMSU.”
Pierce will lead the expansion of student engagement at DMSU, building on the University’s recent growth. DMSU was responsible for delivering 170,000 hours of global training last year—more than the previous five years combined—and that number is growing this year. Pierce attributes the growth to supply and demand.
“We are seeing a demand for employee, distributer and machine-customer training, so we increased the availability and efficiency of the university systems—specifically with online curriculum offerings,” says Pierce.
DMSU offers a variety of courses, ranging from the basics of machining to more specialized courses in machine programming/operation. Courses are interactive and engaging, providing students with real, hands-on experience. In the spring of this year, DMSU received accreditation from the National Institute for Metal Working Skills (NIMS). This achievement is another testament to the company’s commitment to providing the highest quality training in the industry.
DMSU offers “Student Days” for middle school, high school and college students with an interest in the machine tool industry. Students, parents, and educators are invited to tour the facility and learn about the manufacturing industry and the many career opportunities available.
