A new MATES course “Shipbuilding and Industry 4.0” has been launched as part of the MOOC Pilot Experience. It will be delivered in Spanish by Universidade da Coruña – CT Ingenieros.

The application of technologies such as Internet of Things or IoT, Big Data, Data Analytics and Data Mining, Augmented Reality or Mixed Reality systems, Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing, Cybersecurity, Collaborative Robots and Simulation in the sector will be analysed. These technologies will not only be considered independently, but also how they are integrated both horizontally and vertically in the entire production process in the naval sector.
