In this presentation, I will briefly comment on a recently published TMS report on "Modeling across Scales" with a summary of the output and recommendations, and their implications for materials education. The key message is about model integration, data management, and uncertainties, which are important aspects of the MGI (Materials Genome Initiative) and ICME (Integrated Computational Materials Engineering) "materials innovation infrastructure". This talk will conclude with some thoughts on how to best prepare students and young professionals on what could be coming next in computational materials physics.
