Better known as Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution is a developing environment leading to the achievement of fully automated and interconnected industrial production processes. Such interconnection requires high-qualified trained technicians, with high-profile skills in the fields of mechanics, electronics, control, information technology and their mutual integration. These technicians must be able to work in corporate environments and professional associations, who in turns provide services and advice to the players of the production system, to face the challenge of the fourth industrial revolution.

Course content

The job-oriented degree programme in Technologies for the Smart Industry has therefore been fully designed to provide students with methods and techniques that help them address the challenges relating to the new technologies commonly used in smart factories of Industry 4.0. In fact, the training programme offered integrates the theoretical basic knowledge of engineering distinctive subjects with the practical development of such methodologies in laboratories, and their variations in corporate structures through training internships. The knowledge provided to students involves the disciplines of Electronics, Mechanics, Information Technology and Automation, which are sided by soft skills relating to modern technologies, and complex-problem solving, as well as fundamental skills in basic subjects such as Mathematics and Physics.
