EMS in Manufacturing Automation & Digital Transformation

About the programme

The world of manufacturing is changing

As a consequence of the continuous social and economic global challenges, manufacturing companies are evolving their production systems, with particular focus on new management and technology skills.

The Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation & Digital Transformation (EMMA) will prepare future leaders for the 4th industrial revolution. Engineers are often forced into technical specialities and managers do not develop technological knowledge, meaning the end-to-end systemic view is often lost and opportunities missed. This programme blends together all these elements into a unique learning experience.

The best people are needed to face these challenges and take advantage of new developments. Only those who are highly skilled with a deep-rooted understanding of technology as well as markets, and with a forward-looking mindset, can unlock the potential of innovative manufacturing solutions.

The Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation & Digital Transformation is a 12-month, part-time programme now recruiting for November 2018. Begin your application
