Industry 4.0 is a broad but always present topic in the life of an Industrial Engineer. Several courses at the TU/e discuss its importance and implications, but are we truly taught the necessary skills and knowledge which are relevant for the rapidly changing industry? That is a question ESTIEM aims to answer with its upcoming IEM Conference on the 5th and 6th of March! It will be the biggest networking event of ESTIEM, bringing together students, professors, companies and universities from all over Europe. Throughout the two conference days, there will be various sessions which cover three main elements: Skills, Careers and Knowledge.
IEM Skills: What are the most needed skills in Today’s job market? What can IEM students do to develop them
IEM Careers: What careers can IEM graduates follow? What opportunities can they have? What is the best way to grab them?
IEM Knowledge: What are the most important areas of knowledge on IEM? What can you learn about them?
There will be two Keynote Speakers who will shed some light on the opinion of experts regarding the proposed topics: “Skills needed for Industry 4.0”, “Digitalisation in Industry” and the “IEM Degree of the future and how it fits Industry 4.0”. At the Roundtables Sessions, ESTIEM Alumni will discuss the skills they developed in their academic life and their current careers. Several Non-profit organizations (NGOs) will be present in a Panel Discussion to debate their role on student development regarding the most in-demand skills. You also have the opportunity to sign up for two Workshops which match your IEM interests best. Last of all, during the Career and University Fair, a wide variety of companies, universities and professional institutions will be present, who can easily be approached through the online platform the conference is hosted on.
Registration in the event does not imply mandatory presence in all sessions, but it is highly recommended as each of them is valuable on its own way!
Sign before the 3rd of March to secure your spot for IEM Conference 2021!
