“The industrial revolution is now evolving exponentially. While we are still in the middle of Industry 4.0, characterized by the digitalization of information, artificial intelligence and objects’ interconnectivity, Industry 5.0 has already emerged to focus on people, sustainability, and resilience. The beginnings of Industry 6.0 are already on the horizon.”

This major is taught in Lyon
This program is taught in English.
Presentation of the Digital Industry engineering program
Many players in the industrial world have pointed out the difficulty they have in recruiting digital experts who are aware of the challenges and processes they face, and experts trained in industrial engineering, capable of understanding data and computer technologies. This ECE major will be designed to fill this gap.
This program is designed to meet the transformational needs of the industry and will draw on the experience of many professionals working within our partner companies.
The training is divided into several major blocks, namely:
- Acculturation to the world of industry,
- Cyber-Physical Systems and Digital Twins
- IoT, Big data and AI,
- Industry 4.0 and 5.0 technologies,
- Industrial information systems.
As elsewhere at ECE, these courses of the major will be largely taught by professionals. They will be complemented by common core courses in languages, management and humanities, by a range of minors and in-depth options, by internships and projects. Two 4 and 6 month internships in companies are scheduled to allow students to apply their knowledge and skills.
The objectives of the Digital Industry engineering major
Develop new digital manufacturing systems, technologies, applications and tools for smart factories.
Use and design new AI and massive data analysis solutions, with critical thinking skills to interpret results.
Working with “new technologies”, “cyber security” and “data potential” to reflect the growing digital footprint of industrial processes.
Acquire more transversal skills related to creativity, entrepreneurship, flexibility and open-mindedness.
