At this moment a large change in industry takes place, the so called fourth industrial revolution. This revolution involves advances in underlying technologies, e.g. production and ICT, changes in the business models of firms and is likely to have a deep impact on our society. New manufacturing technologies, extensive digitization, interweaving of machines and organizations (Internet of Things) have a huge impact on industry.
This minor “Industry 4.0 with Human Touch” gives an overview of several fields of interest that have implications for this fourth industrial revolution. It prepares students for their future in state of the art industries. The minor is divided in 4 courses related to technology, computer science, business and society and at the end a project brings all these topics together.
