The EMMA program was founded to create the experts the industry needs when adopting an effective, innovative approach to designing and running the production processes and technologies found in smart factories.
The program gives students the chance to obtain a Master’s qualification recognised by a leading business school through classroom-based learning, e-learning modules, workshop exercises and project work.
It includes a total of 260 hours of lecture-style learning and 80 hours of online learning. During the program, students will undertake visits to companies that have adopted innovative manufacturing technologies and processes within their facilities.
The main objectives of the course are: to provide participants with the skills necessary to adopt a strategic approach to the development of cutting-edge technology; to help them understand the implications of technological changes on various production systems; and to allow them to tackle the new leadership challenges posed by Industry 4.0 with creativity and innovation.
The Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation & Digital Transformation is delivered entirely in English and centered around an intense and highly effective learning methodology.
“The third edition of the Executive Master in Manufacturing Automation & Digital Transformation illustrates the ongoing commitment of Comau and its Academy to sharing the wealth of experience acquired by more than 45 years in the industrial automation sector with ambitious managers, executives, and industry professionals”, explains Comau Academy Director Ezio Fregnan.
“EMMA is not a course designed according to the traditional model of teaching and learning – instead, it is a hotbed of innovative ideas that is constantly being updated. Every year, through project work, businesses continue to ask this Master’s to launch innovative new training programs, illustrating this specialist course’s role in tackling the challenges and grasping the opportunities of a changing market.
“Our successful collaboration with the prestigious ESCP Business School has enabled us to create a program for industry professionals that sets out new approaches to the manufacturing sector which reflect digital transformation.”
