Smart and Connected Enterprise (I-ENG SCE)

The aim of this specialism is to introduce the new paradigms of company management based on new information environments and systems, including cyber-physical systems. At the conclusion of the programme, students should be able to model an enterprise, to simulate and optimize its performance, to model and develop solutions for inter-operability between information systems, based on ontologies and multi-view models at different scales (shop floor, factory, company, extended enterprise). New technologies like IoT, smart and agile organizations, etc., and interaction technologies, like virtual and augmented reality, will be integrated in the courses. The place of humans in new smart organizations will also be considered. There is a strong link with the other specialism - Agile Factory Management.

Skills developed

  • Master entreprise modelling methods
  • Master simulation and optimsation methods for entreprise performance assessment
  • Master inter-operability of the information systems of smart and connected enterprises

In addition to the above specialism-specific skills, students will also develop more general skills:
  • Identify models, perfom simulation and analyse results
  • Communicate comprehensive results in a meaningful way
  • Undertake bibliographic surveys of international research and professional literature
  • Manage or be part of a project

Admission Criteria

Students must hold a first university degree with 180 credits in the European system, after at least three years of studies (Bachelor of Science level or equivalent).
The applicants must be fluent in English, both in writing and speaking. An applicant whose native language is not English is required to pass a recognized international English test such as the TOEFL or other equivalent tests.
