The Master’s in Digital Manufacturing for Innovative Ecosystems programme is a dynamic and comprehensive educational initiative that seamlessly blends the study of manufacturing science with a strong emphasis on the utilization and integration of cutting-edge digital solutions and platforms within the manufacturing sector. Throughout the programme, students are exposed to a wide range of new skills in these domains. Key areas covered in this programme encompass modeling and simulation, virtual prototyping, system engineering, industrial processes, and operations. In these areas, students not only acquire the latest theoretical knowledge but also develop a keen ability to apply their newfound expertise to solve practical, real-world challenges.
The programme’s relevance extends to a variety of fields, with a particular focus on areas such as modeling and simulation, which allow students to create virtual representations of manufacturing processes; virtual prototyping, which enables the testing of product designs in a digital environment; system engineering, which emphasizes the integration and optimization of complex systems; and industrial processes and operations, which involve the management and improvement of manufacturing processes. In essence, students are not only equipped with theoretical knowledge but also with the practical skills to implement their insights in real-life industrial scenarios. The programme’s applications are diverse, ranging from the management of cyber-physical systems (CPS) to the effective handling of information systems and digital monitoring, all of which are crucial aspects of modern manufacturing in the era of digital transformation.
