The aim of this master is to train engineering experts in order to be able to address the new challenges of current and future generations of digital societies. Current trends on industrial and digital technologies represented by the Internet of things, cyber-physical systems, social networks, Artificial Intelligence, cloud computing, big data, cognitive computing, mobile robotics, digital twin, and additive manufacturing have provided the basis for a new industrial revolution named Industry 4.0.

Our Industry 4.0 Computer Sciences Master degree offers a 1 year, full-time postgraduate program, aimed at providing solid scientific and technological foundations in order innovate, design and develop future digital organisations based on the new Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE) paradigm. It is suited for students with engineering background planning both an academic or an industrial career and provides the theoretical basis and the practical expertise required to pursue in research or R&D organisations.
The master is fully taught in English, providing a main common curriculum and two options named Digital Manufacturing and IT Digital Transformation.
This master is hosted by the College of Sciences and Technologies for Energy and Environment (STEE) of the Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour (UPPA) in Anglet (France) as well as The National Engineering School of Tarbes (ENIT) of the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse.
This master is supported by the prestigious French Initiative of Excellence label I-SITE (Initiatives Sciences, Innovation, Territories and Economy) and profit from the territorial synergy of the Aerospace industry located in the south west valley of France.
The program is carried out in close collaboration with the LIUPPA research laboratory and Production Engineering Laboratory (LGP) as well as several R&D organisations, where scientific and experimental practices will be performed.
Students will also benefit from the global research environment and administrative support of the UPPA, ENIT and the E2S I-site program.
