Industry 4.0 is about new views on production at the crossroads of industries and disciplines. That is why the Department of ATEP as an academic member of the Association of Industrial Automation Enterprises – the leader of the domestic innovation movement – takes an active part in building our common future. The general seminar, which recently, 03.02.21, brought together representatives of research groups of the university and active teachers, as well as entire departments – shows readiness for change and development. KPI is a huge community of motivated people with vast experience who know how to generate knowledge and turn it into practical projects. Digital duplicates, BigData, smart factories, cloud technologies, communications and the use of artificial intelligence are a reality that needs to be prepared by a new generation of engineers and taught by our companies. We strive for this and we are doing it.
