Germany – A digital business information systems degree course, the Bachelor of Science in Business Information Studies, is now being offered to students at DHBW.

The Bachelor of Science course is a co-operation between the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) and tooling specialist Walter AG. Germany-based Walter is a provider of specialised machining solutions. The company says the course is a recognition of the potency of Industry 4.0 and will effectively “open the door” to career opportunities in smart factories.

Starting this autumn, the three-year degree course, which will be internationally recognised, constitutes scientific studies and practical experience. Students will be alternating between the university and the company every three months, thereby acquiring knowledge, professional experience and “soft skills” proportionately.

The course encompasses:

  • Students receive a fixed salary throughout the duration of the course, while enjoying all the privileges offered to employees by the company.
  • The study programme is more engaging than a regular course and the practical experience has a very diverse content.
  • An internship in a Walter subsidiary abroad for a few weeks is incorporated in this course.

Augmented reality to solve customer problems

06/14/2017 - Germany-based tooling expert Walter AG has revamped its Technology Center at its headquarters in Tübingen to offer customers, partners and staff global access to the company’s latest developments and test results as well as demonstrations of high-technology solutions for machining systems of the future, the company says. read...

According to the company, Industry 4.0 is mechanical and electrical engineering as well as information technology coming together to form an intelligent, networked production system. And, as such, the interlocking of the analogue and digital spheres need a lasting change of attitude – thus, why this new degree course has been developed.

As one of the pioneers of Industry 4.0, one of Walter's key objectives is digital transformation. The company specialises in optimising component machining, complementing its extensive range of tooling with digital components and apps to continuously monitor machining processes – a strategy that needs digital experts.

The course expands Walter's commitment to co-operative degrees in mechanical engineering at universities. The company also trains “school graduates” to become industrial mechanics, machine and system operators as well as electronics technicians.
