Industrial performance covers aspects of quality but also optimisation and automation of industrial processes. This sector is currently experiencing a fourth industrial revolution with the advent of the Internet of Things and digital technologies such as augmented reality, artificial intelligence and even cobotics. The impact is obviously economic but also social, political and environmental.

Engineers and Industry 4.0

Smart factories have been born and with them Industry 4.0. Engineers have a major role to play and IMT Lille Douai trains them to improve the processes implemented in industry and services. To do this, they must master management and quality tools, the automation and digitisation of processes, continuous improvement and industrial performance. General engineers trained at IMT Lille Douai, through the Industries and Services teaching area, are able to then implement them in their company or in a consultancy firm.
