As we move further into the Industry 4.0 era, the role of engineers is becoming increasingly delicate and important. With deeper integration of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), and automation, not only is the way we live and work changing but also how engineers operate and grow.
All facets of businesses and various industries are being revolutionized by digital change, including people as well as processes. But it’s the adequate and optimal use of technology that can empower decision-making, new opportunities for cross-functional cooperation and upskilling, and enhanced talent acquisition and retention.
Being prepared for the changes in the industry of the future means that industrial companies must anticipate changes and adapt to new tools and approaches, while respecting environmental constraints. The engineering school projects offer a practical and innovative learning platform for partner companies, start-ups or large groups to accompany this world in transition. Automation, recycling, […]
Industry 4.0 is here and is revolutionizing working life, thus transforming the engineers’ jobs. Advanced robotics and digital manufacturing come with their array of challenges that require new skills to make them more capable than robots, AI, and algorithms. To ensure the future success of its graduates, the ESILV engineering school focuses on hands-on projects […]
3D printing, the process of producing 3-dimensional objects from a computer file, presents many advantages when it comes to manufacturing, which offers a multitude of possibilities, sometimes unexpected… ESILV School of Engineering has its own FabLab equipped with 3D Printers for students to experiment with this revolutionary technology. The Industry 4.0 Major trains them to […]
On Wednesday 30 September, ESILV Engineering School held a round-table discussion centred around Industry 4.0. Digitalisation of production and maintenance, digital twin, 3D printing: here’s a look back at the comments of four experts from major leading industry players and their vision on the smart factory. The round table was organised by the Corporate Relations Department and […]
Two ex-students from ESILV, Jean-Philippe Panaget and Raphel Garcia Brotons, cofounders of the startup CAD.42, have developed a new device precise within 10 centimetres. The tool alerts if we are less than 2 meters from another person. The beeper Kyd.42 is a connected solution offered by CAD.42 to ensure social distancing and barrier measures on the construction […]
In 2015, a bold statement was made: 3D printers will one day become common product-design and manufacturing devices. Now in 2020, the 3D-printing market has crossed the 1 million-unit threshold and by 2018, the trends were pointing towards a significant opportunity quickly coming into focus.
The last event of the Oracle Hackathon Programme took place on January 31. The Hackathon “Territoires d’Industries” brought together over 120 outstanding students from 4 French universities: IESEG, ESILV, Epitech and 42. In the final round, four teams among the five selected to make their pitches at the Palais du Luxembourg were from ESILV Graduate […]
Starting from December 2019, a new course on additive manufacturing technologies is given to students majoring in Modeling and Numerical Mechanics and Industry 4.0. The course provides theoretical and practical opportunities for engineering students to practise a key technology for the industry of the future. Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is the process […]
Zooming in on the fast pace of digitization in all industries, the transformations many companies are implementing to their strategies have become more obvious, all for the purpose of surviving and thriving in Industry 4.0.
Some people refer to it as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, others as digital transformation, and the vast majority as Industry 4.0. Regardless of its connotation, it’s obviously transforming production lines, supply chains, team divisions and tasks, and altering the manufacturing workplace of tomorrow.
