Digital Manufacturing and Design Technology Course Opens Enrollment
The University of Buffalo(UB) has opened registration for a MOOC focused on harnessed data to make American factories more efficient. Developed for both trainees and employees, the series will present a broad variety of digital production and style innovations, and demonstrate how they can be used throughout a product's lifecycle, the university states. The course has been constructed in partnership with The Center for Industrial Efficiency (TICE), the Digital Production and Style Development Institute and UI Labs.
The course modules will introduce digital manufacturing and style innovations, which utilize information to link and improve each phase of the production process. For example, one module will describe ways to update tradition devices so they catch info about their production and efficiency. Another module on cyber-physical security will cover the best ways to ensure these internet-connected gadgets are protected from hacking. It starts January 30th and will be hosted through Coursera.
"Labor force development is critical to keeping American production competitiveness," said Caralynn Nowinski Collens, CEO of UI LABS. "It is likewise crucial that the collaborative understanding DMDII gains through university, industry, startup and federal government collaboration reach as lots of people as possible."
"For decades universities and factories were worlds apart, but the speed of innovation is drawing them better and more detailed," stated Liesl Folks, dean of the UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. "Developing a first-of-its-kind, impactful curriculum on digital manufacturing is an essential step in reinforcing and re-training our manufacturing employment base."
