Continuously developing competencies to meet future demands is one of modern industry’s biggest challenges. Rubicon is participating in a pilot project called “Engineer 4.0” together with other companies, such as Volvo, SKF and Veoneer. The goal? To gain the necessary knowledge to drive and thrive in the digital revolution, also known as Industry 4.0.
IT-based technologies have changed the manufacturing industry profoundly, and to stay competitive companies need to increase their expertise in digitalization and smart production. To meet this new demand, thirteen Swedish universities and colleges have developed eight training modules that include topics such as additive manufacturing, cyber physical systems, digital twins, human robot collaboration, connectivity and 5G.
”When we saw the need to also address industrial companies, we realized we had to adapt the training to their requirements.”
“Our curriculum needs to adapt to the changing conditions,” says Bengt-Göran Rosén, project lead and professor at Halmstad University, Jönköping University and Chalmers University of Technology. “That’s why we’ve developed these training modules. When we saw the need to also address industrial companies, we realized we had to adapt the training to their requirements. The answer was a digital version that users can take when they have the time.”
