The second level Specializing Master in Industrial Automation by the Politecnico di Torino is organized together with Comau and Prima Industrie, and financed by Regione Piemonte.

The opening ceremony for the Sixth Edition of the second level Specializing Master in Industrial Automation by the Politecnico di Torino, organized together with Comau and Prima Industrie and financed by the Region of Piedmont, was held at 9.30 am, today, in the Consiglio di Facoltà Sala at the Politecnico di Torino.
The newest edition of the Master also includes several important developments that will provide participants with the right tools to understand and drive the changes taking place within industrial production processes.

Industrial automation is a challenging market in continuous expansion, and requires highly specialized professionals with elevated technical and managerial skills. The goal of the program, therefore, is to invest in young, talented graduates by giving them the opportunity to develop these skills directly in the field.
From the start of the two-year program, the training focus will center on Industry 4.0, which is also known as the “fourth industrial revolution”, and the related, enabling technologies that are increasingly affecting – and transforming – the international industrial manufacturing panorama.

Thanks to the Masters in Industrial Automation and Additive Manufacturing, organized in 2016 with Comau and the Politecnico di Torino, 6 young talents have become part of our group,” adds Gianfranco Carbonato, Executive Chairman of Prima Industrie. “Our participation in the new editions confirms our belief that the new generations will be the bearers of the innovative approaches and new energies that companies need, and that the Master is an excellent tool for meeting, selecting, and training them. It is important that the Master this year is focused on the Industry 4.0, as autonomous systems, the integration and interconnection of machines and companies, Additive Manufacturing, Big Data, Cloud, IoT and augmented reality are becoming more widespread in manufacturing and will undoubtedly be the production pillars of the future.
