It can be said that the fourth industrial revolution has been triggered by the new industrial models.

The evolution of the industry is a continuous process but within this continuum we can identify key moments of radical changes in our history. We call these periods “revolutions” because they completely change the way our society functions. We’re currently undergoing such a period in the field of industry, it’s called industry 4.0. The fourth industrial revolution is characterized by the digitisation of industrial processes, computer control and the inclusion of sensors in production lines.

Industry 4.0 cannot be understood without another great technological advancement of our era, the so-called “Internet of Things” (IoT). The connection between different objects and the information they provide is essential for the progress of the new industry. In addition, the Big Data concept provides methods for collecting and managing large amounts of information.

The University of Salamanca wants to help future professionals by providing them with the training that the new industry will require, they must learn to manage and participate in these processes, which is what the Bisite Research Group is striving to achieve.  The Master’s Degree in Technologies Applied to Industry 4.0 prepares its students for all they will need. They will become specialists in the technologies associated with the fourth industrial revolution, fully capacitated to solve any kind of industrial problem.
