The Industry 4.0 Summer School gives an insight into the objectives and strategies of Industry 4.0, shows the current status of activities, and provides information on how to benefit from the ideas linked to Industrie 4.0 today. In addition to a theoretical introduction to Industry 4.0, the main technologies and processes for the implementation of Industrie 4.0 will be introduced and then addressed in greater detail in a workshop. The aim is actually to enable digitalisation. Starting from the process itself, the digitisation of companies will be introduced and then expanded on using hands-on examples. A model system will be used to demonstrate the technological possibilities.

A participation certificate is issued for all I4.0 Summer School students and handed out at the end of the summer school. The certificate lists the topics and the duration of the Summer School. The course credit does not apply for internal I4.0 students (i.e. FH Aachen students, who take part in this course over a longer time period and receive therefore 5 ECTS).
All I4.0 participants have the option to take the final written exam. Those, who write the exam, will get a I4.0 transcript with a grade for their test Performance and the course credit (4 ECTS credits). The grading scheme is as follows:
from 1.0 to 1.5 = very good
from 1.6 to 2.5 = good
from 2.6 to 3.5 = satisfactory
from 3.6 to 4.0 = sufficient
above 4.0 = failed
