Applications open for Shahi Industry Chair 4.0 at NIFT Delhi
Applications are open for the Shahi Industry Chair 4.0 at the National Institute of Fashion Technology Delhi. This program supports internship or dissertation projects for qualifying candidates.
The Shahi Industry 4.0 Chair for apparel manufacturing was established at NIFT to build a robust relationship between the industry and academia. It aims to facilitate research in emerging technologies that disrupt the apparel manufacturing sector. The potential area of study must fall under Industry 4.0. Each of these projects will result in a detailed document including the final design and technical specifications and a model or prototype or software.
What is Industry 4.0?
Global production and supply networks are undergoing fundamental shifts through increased automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices, using modern innovative technology, large-scale machine-to-machine communication (M2M), and the internet of things (IoT). This integration increases automation, improves communication and self-monitoring, and uses intelligent machines that can analyze and diagnose issues without human intervention.
The phrase ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ was first introduced by a team of scientists developing a high-tech strategy for the German government. Klaus Schwab, executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), introduced the phrase to a broader audience in a 2015 article published by Foreign Affairs*.
