Shape the Change
Digital Manufacturing & Industry 4.0 Programme

Many areas of our lives have already been changed by the Internet of Things, and industry is no exception. By blending the real and the virtual worlds of production via the internet, the IoT makes it possible to connect all parts of the production process: machines, products, systems, and people.

 

 

This means that machines and products can communicate so they can manage themselves and each other. Software-based system and service platforms will play a major role in tomorrow’s manufacturing; they are the only way to bring connectivity, including data analysis, to machines and workpieces in production. What will customers want in the future? They will demand a wider range of variants and more personalized products. Thus, future production must be able to adapt quickly to changed market requirements. Industry 4.0 is the answer to this challenge.

In the light of these developments, Boğaziçi University and Bosch Turkey has jointly developed a unique certification program that is Shape the Change – Digital Manufacturing & Industry 4.0. Students enrolled in any undergraduate and graduate programs of any university in Turkey may apply the Programme and work on innovation projects focusing digital manufacturing & Industry 4.0. Future production must be able to adapt quickly to changed market requirements Industry 4.0 is the answer to this challenge. Thus, Industry 4.0 is chosen as a topic due to its value.
