Course Presentation

The MSc in Data Science and AI for a Competitive Manufacturing programme is a Master of Science programme within the EIT Manufacturing (EITM) Master School. The EITM Master School is a highly prestigious Manufacturing Engineering and Science education provider collaborating with its 9 leading European partner universities.

Education at EIT Manufacturing Master School combines technical competence with skills in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. EIT Manufacturing Master School students will be an elite group of forthcoming engineers, researchers, innovators, and other relevant professionals.

The curriculum of this programme is thoughtfully designed to encompass a rich blend of manufacturing science and cutting-edge information and communication technology (ICT). This fusion equips students with a holistic understanding of how technology is transforming the field of manufacturing. Here are the key components of the curriculum:

  • Manufacturing Science: Students delve into the fundamentals of manufacturing, including the physics of equipment and processes. This knowledge forms the backbone of their understanding of how things are made and how manufacturing processes function.
  • Information and Communication Technology (ICT): The programme integrates the latest trends in ICT, focusing on the application and adoption of advanced digital solutions and platforms. This aspect of the curriculum empowers students to leverage technology to enhance manufacturing processes.
  • Modeling and Simulation: Students learn to create virtual representations of manufacturing processes and systems. This is crucial for testing and optimizing production procedures without physical prototypes, leading to cost savings and efficiency improvements.
    Virtual Prototyping: Virtual prototyping allows students to design, test, and refine product models in a digital environment, enabling faster and more cost-effective product development.
  • Service and Systems Engineering: This field emphasizes the integration and optimization of complex systems and services. Graduates are equipped to design and manage systems that are efficient, adaptable, and sustainable.
  • Machine Learning: With the incorporation of machine learning, students gain the ability to develop algorithms that enable machines and systems to learn from data and make intelligent decisions. This is particularly relevant for automating manufacturing processes and predictive maintenance.
  • Data Mining: Data mining skills enable students to extract valuable insights from large datasets, which can be applied to optimize manufacturing processes, enhance quality control, and make informed decisions.

In essence, this programme equips students with a multidisciplinary skill set that spans the spectrum of traditional manufacturing science to the latest advancements in ICT. They are not only well-versed in the principles of manufacturing but also proficient in applying technology to make production processes more efficient, sustainable, and adaptable. This broad knowledge base empowers graduates to address real-world challenges in manufacturing and contribute to the development of innovative solutions in an era of rapidly evolving technology.
