Summer School 2019         

Industry 4.0

The Future of Manufacturing

The Ruhr Metropolitan Area as one of the major industrial sites of Europe is an excellent example of the shift from old industries to some of the most advanced  production plants in the world. Digitalization plays a key role in this development and offers opportunities and challenges at the same time.

The Ruhr-University of Bochum is a center of excellence concerning researching and consulting of companies on their way through the “4th industrial revolution”, as the movement is labeled in Germany.

We want to invite you to design this worldwide movement with us.
