The goal is to train the students to understand and work on integrating industrial processes into global changes brought by digitizing the processes. They need to be able to automate and share data in production technologies. This includes the use of Internet technologies, the Internet of things, Cloud computing, Big data processes, Artificial Intelligence and standards for computer security and system safety. These students will be able to fit into the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The students will be able to understand and apply new global technologies in the technological processes of individual industries based on data digitalization and data exchange in the world where physical elements exchange data between each other and manipulate processes through artificial intelligence. The students will posses readiness to introduce the concept of smart factory, smart city, and smart services. The students will be able to understand the possibilities, opportunities and challenges of Industry 4.0. and how companies and individuals need to prepare for it and what benefits it brings.
