This trend is called Industry 4.0 and AAU is particularly focused on preparing you for this development within the manufacturing industry. You and your fellow students learn how to handle the different issues that occur as a result of this new trend by e.g. working in AAU’s brand new smart lab, which is an imitation of a production line.
