Apprenticeships in the US

In K@W:  Making a comeback?  Yes, I think so, for example a good place would be in data science and programming, which are at least 50% practiced - skill based to do well.  And do in a standardized way. Elsewhere are well.   I recall my father detailing his grueling experiences as a machinist's apprentice.

These are not necessarily done best in the University setting, we saw that a long time ago.  Perhaps a model that has university and experienced practitioners linked together? Also saw that in a recent experience, but the company was not willing to create the needed apprentice environment.
