The digital future of manufacturing
RUB Summer School Industry 4.0: The Ruhr Metropolitan Area as one of the major industrial sites of Europe is an excellent example of the shift from old industries to some of the most advanced production plants in the world.

The Ruhr University Bochum is a center of excellence concerning researching and consulting of companies on their way through the “4th industrial revolution”, as the movement is labeled in Germany. The Summer School offers you the opportunity to work in the learning factory of the university and gain hands-on experience in role plays and workshops.
