School of Engineering Science
Rapid technological development in industry is contributing to increasing needs for specific skills. Therefore, and in order to strengthen Swedish industry's competitiveness, Civilingenjör 4.0 (Graduate Engineer 4.0), an education initiative at Master’s level, is being offered through a collaboration between universities and industry. The programme consists of 12 modules, each worth 3 higher education credits.
Civilingenjör 4.0 is offered free of charge and targets primarily graduate engineers (or engineers with an equivalent level of education), students as well as employees, but also individuals with other relevant education. The University of Skövde is responsible for providing the C2 module: Cyber-Physical Production Systems and Digital Twins. Its sub-modules deal with both theory and practice.
The project is a four-year initiative within Produktion2030 (Strategic Innovation Programme for Sustainable Production in Sweden) and funded by the Swedish innovation agency, Vinnova.
The modules are provided by Linköping University, the University of Skövde, Chalmers University of Technology and the Royal Institute of Technology during the period 2017–2021. Read more about this education initiative here.
