Group of Participants

  • from the area of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering
  • with fundamental knowledge of production Technology.

The buzzword Industry 4.0 describes a collection of technologies leading to the factory of the future. To understand, categorize, and successfully apply the theoretical foundation, i.e. the technological basics for the digital transformation, an entirely new understanding is necessary.

The course takes place on two consecutive days and has a distinctive workshop character. Course content is developed and consolidated in interactive lectures, group work, presentations and case studies.
