Impact of Industry 4.0 on Higher Education


The concept of Industrial Revolution (IR) 4.0 was first formulated in Germany in 2011 and it has now become talk of the day nationally and internationally. IR 4.0 is expected to connect, integrate and automate everything on a grand scale including man, machine, manufacturing process, factory, products, logistics, customers and the total value chain. Klaus Schwab, Head of the World Economic Forum said, “We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before.”
