Industrial Engineering and Management of the Future?
(i) Elaborate a CLUSTER IEM strategic response to the development of the "Industry of the future (or 4.0)" in our countries. Take a step back to articulate a "shared vision" of what Industry of the Future is, its impact on our students future jobs and expected skills, and, as a consequence, on our Industrial Engineering and Management teaching curriculum. Focus on explicit consequences for our network.
(ii) Bring out some specificities of each partner in connection with the "industry of the future (4.0)" that may attract our exchanged students. The aim is to articulate highlights for our international exchanges supply. The idea here is to define a core attractive difference for each partner and to design a 30 ECTS package per partner around this core. We’re clearly not looking for homogenized contents, though a standard format for semester exchanges would ease our exchange organization.
(iii) Try to identify two or three projects of "shared courses" organized between two or three of our institutions. The idea here is to share resources within our network.
(iv) Try to bring out one or two common projects such as special event e.g. summer (winter) school on IEM for the industry of the future. These would involve partners, students and companies.
