Tecnun designs a 4.0 skills program for MII students development
The goal is that the students of Tecnun develop the talent required by today's industry.
Industry 4.0 is the introduction of digital technologies in industries. This phenomenon encompasses technologies such as sensorisation, Big Data, Data Analytics and Machine Learning, autonomous robots, 3D printing, augmented reality, artificial vision, the cloud, cybersecurity, etc.
In recent years, this digital transformation has been bursting onto the business ecosystem. Data such as the fact that the United States is going to invest around 900 billion dollars a year in the modernization of its industries, or the nearly thirty European initiatives that exist to finance digital transformations, such as "Connected Industry 4.0" or Basque Industry 4.0, are test of this. However, the management of this change will only be sustainable if the professionals involved have the necessary skills and competencies to work with and manage these technologies.
"From Tecnun we have designed a program of development of 4.0 skills for future engineers who are trained in our classrooms to develop the talent that is demanding today's industry," says director of development of Tecnun, Iñigo Gutiérrez. "After two years working with more than twenty pioneering companies in the use of 4.0 technologies, we have identified the skills most in demand by today's industry and we have validated a program of training activities for our students to improve their training. This program is the result of a joint work in which we have combined the knowledge of industry professionals with the teaching and research experience of the Master's professors," says Álvaro Lleó, professor at department of Industrial Organization.
Description and Methodology
The program development of competences 4.0 of the Master in Industrial Engineering of Tecnun, offers to the students of the Master the possibility to develop the most demanded competences in Industry 4.0.
This program is developed on the following activities: on the one hand, with lecture series organized jointly with the Official College of Industrial Engineers of Gipuzkoa. On the other hand, in face-to-face classes, theoretical explanations will be complemented with exercises and challenges for students to learn proactively. In addition, students will have the opportunity to take part in a mentoring program staff to design their own skills plan development . Finally, they will also be able to carry out their project Final Master's Degree by designing a solution to an Industry 4.0 problem. The Degree in which the students acquire and develop the 4.0 competences will be evaluated by means of rubrics and mentoring follow-up.
After completing the program, students can obtain two levels of certification: intermediate and advanced. Students who have passed all the subjects of the Master, have attended 80% of the lectures given and have completed 4 mentoring interviews staff will be certified at the intermediate level.
To obtain the advanced level, in addition to the above, the student must have completed the project End of Master's Degree on a challenge 4.0 and obtain a grade of A by the defense court.
