“There is a limited application of i4.0 in universities in which students have no chance to be trained on practical knowledge and skills that are needed for employment after graduation. Therefore, IUH had been actively at the forefront in applying i4.0 in teaching. The Project will provide overall knowledge of i4.0; also, skills of analysis, design, simulation, automation on i4.0 foundation; and skills of analyzing and designing monitoring system and industrial controlling that base on the Industry 4.0, integrated Internet of Things.

Furthermore, the Project provides skills of Digital Enterprise Management comprising production chain, supply chain, sales, and service through application based on clouds meeting the market-based needs.
