IoT in Industry 4.0 – Hands-on Workshop

Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak is pleased to offer the IoT in Industry 4.0 – Hands-on Workshop in Kuching, Sarawak.  The 2-day course is scheduled on 17-18 October and is now open for registration.

The workshop is designed to give an insight into the application of Internet of Things (IoT) and its applications and opprtunities in the industry.

Upon completion, you will receive a Certificates of Attendance – “IoT in Industry 4.0 – Hands-on Workshop” from Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak.

Why You Should Attend This Course:

Digital transformation is known to be an effective solution in improving the productivity and efficiency of the manufacturing industry and lately the addition of Internet of Things (IoT) has driven the industry to another level. With the most recent industrial transformation, IoT has become one of the key enablers in Industry 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing implementation. However, the application of these technologies in the local industries has not been widely explored. This short course aims to gather and expose the participants from different industry backgrounds to the IoT technology and their applications in various areas. The participants will also get their chance to have the hands-on experience in developing the IoT solutions to solve the problem in their relevant work place using the popular open-source development platforms.

Note: Participants are required to bring laptop for hands on exercises.
