Webinar - Advanced Education in Industry 4.0 Can Offer Career Benefits, Opportunities to Engineers
Industry 4.0, as many in and outside the industry call it, is an evolution toward interconnectivity, automation, machine learning and decisions based on real-time data acquisition. From 3D printing to artificial intelligence and expanded robotics use, people who work in manufacturing, production, product and process design and management of these industries face a sea change.

Individuals who understand these emerging technologies and the industry’s data-driven direction are in demand. According to a frequently referenced report from Deloitte, 89% of manufacturers say they can’t find enough qualified candidates to fill open jobs. Notably, Deloitte’s report points out that half of manufacturing executives surveyed say certain technological skills, such as robotics and automation expertise, will be in high demand in the next few years.

Key Learnings:
  • Industry 4.0 is the next evolution in engineering.
  • Industry 4.0 focuses on: Big Data, Cyber Security, Additive Manufacturing, Machine Learning, and Sensors.
  • This is becoming a major focal point for the future of organizations.
  • Becoming educated in this field can help people take that next step in their careers.
  • Industry 4.0 allows for an organization to become more efficient.
  • Industry 4.0 allows an organization to become more secure.
