Study programme of Wilhelm Büchner Hochschule
From Internet of Things to IT security to cloud-based design and manufacturing—digitalisation as an innovation driver in mechanical engineering requires a convergence of modern mechanical engineering and current drivers of information technology. Modern Industry 4.0 plants rely on the digital networking of robots and machines. With data science technologies, new potentials for quality improvement, efficiency, product innovations, and supply chain management are raised with the data collected in the machines. Production plants are controlled centrally and by artificial intelligence. IT security protects digital factories. Digitalisation drives innovations in mechanical engineering and vice versa. This has created completely new fields of tasks. Mechanical Engineering Informatics is a modern degree programme related to Industry 4.0 and offers very good career prospects for the upcoming tasks of digitalisation in the mechanical engineering industry.
