In the context of this lecture series the departments MV, EIT, Info, and Wiwi present the topic "Industrial Internet" and discuss it from different perspectives.
  • Introduction into the topic; basics and understanding of integration, interdisciplinarity and networking in the context of Industrial Internet (including Industry 4.0, Internet of Things and Services)
  • Fundamentals of discipline-specific product development: design theory of mechanics
  • Fundamentals of discipline-specific production: systems of production, design of manufacturing processes
  • Fundamentals of discipline-specific process and plant engineering: product design and process engineering
  • Design of microelectronic circuits and systems
  • Fundamentals of information processing, embedded systems
  • Software Engineering for Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Design of Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Business models for the Internet of Things and Services
  • From mechatronic to cybertronic systems
  • Practical examples and success stories for Industry 4.0
  • Exercise: Interdisciplinary Product Development for Industrial Internet (including Industry 4.0, Internet of Things and Services)
