Young Talents

Master's with second level specialization in Manufacturing 4.0


​Industry 4.0, considered as the fourth industrial revolution, is a term to describe a world in which machines interact and respond intelligently to the physical environment. It is the next phase in the digitization of the manufacturing sector and will have a deep impact on four main clusters of technologies:

  • data, computational power, and connectivity (big data, the Internet of Things IoT, and cloud technology);
  • analytics and intelligence (digitization and automation of knowledge work, advanced analytics);
  • human-machine interaction (touch interfaces, virtual and augmented reality);
  • digital-to-physical conversion ( additive manufacturing i.e. 3D printing, advanced robotics e.g.human-robot collaboration, energy storage and harvesting, Machine-to-Machine).

The partner’s companies, deeply involved in the Italian Industry 4.0, require young, highly motivated recent graduates in engineering that, through this 2nd level Specializing Master’s programme, will become highly skilled engineers in the techniques of manufacturing engineering and its related technologies.

The Manufacturing 4.0 programme will provide effective careers for managers who can meet challenges in a rapidly changing global manufacturing industry with particular attention on technical as well as organizational and managerial skills.

A project proposal for this 2nd level Specializing Master’s programme will be submitted for funding to Regione Piemonte in the framework of a specific regional call for proposals  (Avviso Pubblico per la realizzazione dei percorsi formativi per: Laurea triennale e magistrale, Diploma Accademico di I e II livello, Master di I e II livello, Dottorato di Ricerca e Diploma Accademico di Formazione alla Ricerca, Attività di Ricerca - in attuazione della D.G.R. n. 37-3617 del 11/07/2016).
