Scaling Research Training

There is a lot of need in the Industry for engineers who know the art (edited to craft)of research (pursue and find the right literature and algorithms, understand prior art, adopt and modify for a specific context with domain awareness, interpret results,  dive deeper into the unique insights), or researchers who can apply this art with engineering finesse. I wondered yesterday in a meeting if our technological lessons from COVID times have helped us identify a way to train many more in the ways of research, more than what we produce as PhDs in universities (the MS programs seem to train advanced engineers more than padawan researchers).
