Description

The course provides students an opportunity to get prepared for Industry 4.0 (the Fourth Industrial Revolution) with a focus on advanced applications in intelligent design and manufacturing. Students' understanding and capabilities in design and manufacturing will be further developed with the latest technological developments in Industry 4.0, such as additive manufacturing, generative design, predictive maintenance, smart manufacturing, etc. Students will get familiar with both theories and industrial methodology/platforms of Industry 4.0 by working both individually and in groups. Hands-on experience will also be gained through labs and course projects. Particularly, students will learn how to identify an industrial problem, implement Industry 4.0 technologies, develop intelligent design and manufacturing solutions, build prototypes using industrial methodology/platforms, and conduct performance analysis. After taking this course, students will be well prepared for Industry 4.0 with key technological skills and hand-on experience to develop intelligent design and manufacturing solutions that are changing the whole industry.

After taking this course, students will be well prepared for Industry 4.0 with key technological skills and hand-on experience to develop intelligent design and manufacturing solutions that are changing the whole society.
