The Certificate in Intelligent Manufacturing Systems is a Level 9 programme which aspires to bridge the gap between the engineering operations and information technology paradigms in the manufacturing sector. Smart Manufacturing has been described as the synthesis of advanced manufacturing capabilities and digital technologies to produce highly customisable products faster, cheaper, better, and greener. A smart factory will integrate data from system-wide physical, operational, and human assets to drive manufacturing, maintenance, inventory tracking and the digitisation of operations in order to achieve this goal.

Participants will acquire the skills necessary to contribute effectively to operate in the factory of the future, bringing manufacturing through to the next level envisaged by Industry They will acquire specific knowledge of the new and emerging areas and how to integrate IT with Manufacturing Technology. Specific topics include Machine Learning, Data Science and Information Analytics, Robotics and Autonomous systems, Maintenance and machine Prognostics.
