Industry 4.0 and Cyber-Physical Systems


Online Live

The essence of Industry 4.0 is the evolution of industries towards the development of interconnected devices, processes and systems, best summarized as the integration of cyber-physical systems in and outside of an organization. It encompasses internal physical and cyber assets such as machinery, equipment, processes, databases, and the networked integration of external components such as suppliers, supply chain elements and customers.

The Industry 4.0 and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) certificate is the first practical and applied program in Canada. We have designed this three-day intensive program for engineers, managers and decision-makers in manufacturing and various support roles. This program will inform, educate, and provide candidates with the latest tools to help them lead and manage the transformational journey required to make their organization more efficient and competitive in the new digital age.
