  • RoIDigital Manufacturing Reduced Machine Downtime by 50%

Worldwide, Industry 4.0 is fuelling the emergence of smart factories across diverse industry verticals, including FMCG, automotive, healthcare, aerospace, defence, etc. The adoption of connected and intelligent digital technologies further enables smart factories to enhance productivity, profitability, compliance, and customer delight.

The digital manufacturing industry is growing and is expected to reach $767.82 billion by 2025. India, among other countries, views manufacturing as vital to the country’s digital transformation strategy. With smart factories re-imagining manufacturing jobs, there is a growing need for professionals savvy with emerging technologies to lead the digital transformation in the sector.

The PG Level Advanced Certification Programme in Digital Manufacturing and Smart Factories aims to build an ecosystem of such professionals. It is a 5-month programme coordinated by the Centre for Product Design and Manufacturing (CPDM), a research and technology-intensive design and manufacturing department at IISc. Participants will learn from a Faculty Group spread across the Product Design and Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics Systems Engineering, Materials Engineering, Computer Science and Automation Departments at IISc.

The programme is delivered in an experiential learning format comprising Masterclass Lectures, Lab exercises using Comprehensive Digital Tools and Project implementation at the IISc Smart Factory Labs.
