Mälardalen University position
Mälardalen University (MDH) has a proven track record in close industrial collaboration and leading competence in production and embedded systems, and is, with a matching aspiration to be Sweden’s next technical university, uniquely positioned to spearhead the digitalization of Swedish industry outlined above. In contrast to the ongoing ARRAY graduate school focusing on industrial automation and technology development, the INDTECH research school focuses on industrialization and production system development through the introduction of data-driven production systems.
The research field of INDTECH is organized into four tracks covering core topics for manufacturing and process industries in production optimization through, and deployment of, Industry 4.0 and applied AI. For the tracks, the position of MDH from a national and international perspective is given below.
Digital transformation of Production Systems
Industrial Artificial Intelligence
Resilient Industrial Systems
Energy Efficient Production and Control
With 9 of the 15 INDTECH students allocated to IPR, the estimated resulting research output are almost 50 scientific publications, a substantial contribution to IPR’s ambition to be an internationally recognized partner in Industry 4.0 and Applied AI. By actively promoting publications in journals and top-ranking conferences, IndTech will follow the MDH strategy to increase the number of international high-ranking academic journals- or conferences publications, strengthening MDHs national and international academic position.
