Montreal is a major world aerospace center, with more than 200 specialized companies making it an ideal location for any interested players in this industry. It only comes as natural that Concordia Institute of Aerospace Design and Innovation (CIADI) and The Research Centre on Advanced Manufacturing are partnering to welcome students and industry professionals to the Industry 4.0 Summer School.

Industry 4.0 is the digitization of a company’s physical assets and the company’s integration into digital ecosystems with its value chain partners, from suppliers to customers. It uses smart technology and real-time data to increase flexibility, customization, efficiency and productivity, and to reduce time, costs and innovation cycles.

Industry 4.0 will require innovation on two fronts: smart products and smart processes. It will also require substantial change to the workforce, which will need to be trained and skilled to work in an Industry 4.0 environment; this is one of the biggest challenges of the fourth industrial revolution.

The Summer School is an opportunity to advance your technical skills, network with colleagues and visit industry partners. In this three-day summer school, come learn about the challenges and solutions that will prepare industry and academia for the advent of Industry 4.0.
