Smart Manufacturing Industrial Informatics, BS

The Smart Manufacturing Industrial Informatics (SMII) major features the holistic integration of the digital transformation technologies and capabilities of Industry 4.0. It introduces students to topics in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), cyber-physical systems, manufacturing intelligence/analytics, cloud/edge computing, augmented reality, simulation, autonomous and human robot interactions, additive manufacturing, and industrial cybersecurity, all presented in the context of smart manufacturing applications. Central to this new curriculum is the integration of physical operational technologies with the information technologies to implement data driven production systems and processes using artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques. Courses in the program will be aligned with the digitalization strategies of Industry 4.0, particularly with the systemic utilization of IIoT, data, AI/ML, and Cloud/Edge computing for optimizing production processes, improve productivity, quality, and efficiency of cyber-physical manufacturing operations in a smart connected enterprise.

Critical Course

The ♦ course is considered critical.

In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major.  Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful.  These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”. 


The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.
