Tooling specialist Walter is preparing people for an Industry 4.0 future via a new Bachelor of Science course at Baden-Württemberg Co-operative State University (DHBW) in Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany.
Industry 4.0 means that mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and information technology are growing closer together to form an intelligently networked production scenario, says Walter. According to the company, the interlocking of the analogue and digital world requires a lasting change of attitude, not just in companies, but also in universities.
The new co-operative Bachelor of Science in Business Information Studies will commence in autumn 2018, combining scientific study with Walter’s practical experience. Students will switch between the university and Walter AG every three months. In this way, they will gain knowledge, professional experience and so-called soft skills in equal measure. After a three-year study programme and a thesis, graduates will complete their education with the academic title Bachelor of Science.
