The Automatism and Industrial Computing (AII ) course focuses onautomation and robotics, fields that are essential in the industrial production sector.
With the digital revolution of the industry of the future, this course will enable you to install and program automated systems (PLCs, robots and vision) that will ensure the management and control of industrial processes.
You will discover what theindustry of the future brings as a new way of organising production resources, by placing digital technology (the Internet of Things (IoT), the digital twin, augmented or virtual reality, artificial intelligence, the Cloud, Big Data, cybersecurity, etc.) at the heart of manufacturing resources.

These communicating tools, thanks to the development of new industrial computer networks, will provide you with solutions for setting up control systems (supervision and Man-Machine Interface) which will allow for assistance in the operation of installations, their monitoring, the traceability of products and the monitoring of energy consumption.
