Industry 4.0 – Overview and Certifications

The Industry 4.0 Fundamentals program was developed in response to rapidly evolving technologies and processes across industry, due to the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It also prepares students to sit for written and hands-on assessments for Industry 4.0 certifications through the Smart Automation Certification Alliance (SACA).

While the program has seen great success in the schools who have adopted it, some may still wonder what the core concepts of Industry 4.0 are and how they affect education.

We’ve put together several pieces overviewing Industry 4.0 concepts, programs, and case studies in the last year:
