This is what you will learn
Digitalization is changing the way business and society works, but very much of the debate and knowledge around digitalization is linked to direct-to-consumer businesses. Industries – especially the natural resources and process industries – have different needs and a radically different IT landscape. This course, therefore, introduces the concept of industrial digitalization: how digitalization affects engineering, the process industries, and the oil & gas industry. This introduction will give master’s level students and practicing engineers, scientists, and managers an overview of the key ideas, concepts, technologies, and methods in industrial digitalization. This will enable them to be better-informed participants, stakeholders, and customers in digitalization projects. The course will be structured around the use case of digital twin applications. Students in the course will work on proposing and defining a digital twin solution that is relevant to their work, technical or business interest. In doing this work they will apply the knowledge and methods acquired in the course.
This course gives an interdisciplinary, research-based overview of industrial digitalization. It gives enough technical depth that the student will be able to be a critical end-user of technology and interact intelligently with specialists in these technologies. In this way, they can be bridge-builders between the IT, engineering, and business stakeholders in a digitalization project. They can thus specify and run relevant, cost-effective, and profitable digitalization projects. The course requires the intellectual maturity and specific skills gained through a master’s degree in IT, engineering, or business.
