In the highly technical and digitalized production, "Industry 4.0", human being and machine communicate and cooperate. The aim is to combine and automate as many work steps as possible.
Here, automation technology is the key to success. It ensures consistent quality and boosts efficiency. It also makes the workplace safer by eliminating work steps that are dangerous for humans.
By studying industrial automation you will become a master of the jigsaw puzzle: You'll put process engineering, sensors, actuators, mechanical engineering, and mechatronics together to form a picture and make complex systems work.
How? You will learn to combine information and communication technology with artificial intelligence and increasingly powerful robots.

Melanie Vukas: What fascinates me about Industrial Automation is simply the almost limitless possibilities you have in areas such as robotics, artificial intelligence, and so on. Above all, I'm interested in automation in industry. Entire halls where machines independently store material, get certain material, transport it to another place and all that without human help. Simply incredible!
