About the course
This online course course provides an overview of the changing paradigms of manufacturing in the context of industrial/technical revolutions, and how the industrial internet of things (IoT) will enable smart and personalized manufacturing. Sustainable manufacturing, life cycle assessment, eco-audit, and metrics for assessing manufacturing systems are also covered in detail.
Part I: Innovation in Manufacturing - Introduction
- Industrial Revolutions and Paradigms of Manufacturing (68 min)
- The Fourth Industrial Revolution, Big Data and Smart Manufacturing (18 min)
- Personalized Manufacturing (13 min)
- Summary (7 min)
Part II: Sustainable Manufacturing
- Sustainability Introduction (30 min)
- Carbon and Water Footprinting (44 min)
- Methods for Life Cycle Material/Process Selection (32 min)
- Sustainable Manufacturing Systems (37 min)
TIME COMMITMENT AND WORK PACE
Modules are divided into shorter segments making it easier to learn at your own pace.
If completing a specialization, all four modules must be purchased together and completed in 180 days. For individual modules, you will have 60 days to complete.
Successful completion requires you to view all course modules and receive an 80% passing grade on the course assessment. Upon completing these requirements, you will earn a digital badge for your resume or LinkedIn page.
CERTIFICATE OPTION AND SPECIALIZATIONS
Upon successful completion of 4 modules purchased as a group, you will receive the U-M Certificate in Current and Emerging Technologies.
Select 4 modules from one concentration to deepen your knowledge in a subject or area. If you choose a specialization, your certificate will note the specialization you completed.
PREREQUISITES & TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
