The aim of the study is to educate interdisciplinary experts with a broad perspective, sufficient theoretical knowledge and good practical experience, who are able to follow with understanding, apply and develop modern technological trends in digitally oriented industry (Industry 4.0).
Thanks to mastering modern tools in the field of informatics and cybernetics, these experts can not only comprehensively apply, but also design conceptually new solutions for cyberphysical systems (CPS) for modern industrial production and thus strengthen the competitiveness of the Czech Republic. For the digitally oriented industry of the 21st century, graduates of this study program are equipped with knowledge and experience gained during project-oriented study - based on this equipment they can join project teams of developers and manufacturers of modern SW and HW tools or establish innovative companies coming up with new solutions in design and application of systems that monitor and collect data from physical industrial processes, provide global access to this data and significantly expand the functionality and competitiveness of manufacturing companies.
Connecting these systems to the virtual environment of globally interconnected services and information systems opens a new era of innovation in the industry and offers original business platforms. Future cyberphysical systems will contribute to human safety, efficiency, comfort and health and will help address the key challenges of our society, such as an aging population, limited resources, mobility, the shift to renewable energy sources.
