Smart Production

Smart industry involves digitisation and renewal of production. The aim is to become more competitive and to live up to stricter requirements relating to emissions and the environment that have been imposed because of the ongoing climate debate.

Smart production also concerns modernising your processes and benefitting from the digital opportunities that exist. More efficient production not only benefits the environment, but it also creates increased profitability and greater competitiveness.

We offer university courses for those working in industrial production. All the courses have been developed in cooperation with industry.

We also offer MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and webinars that are open to everyone regardless of background or prior knowledge.
