The Industry 4.0 District is a major undertaking by UAE University as part of its ambitious plan to be the “University of the Future”. This “District” will host Labs that will bring about different aspects of the Fourth Industrial Revolution into the education of UAEU students in terms of courses and programs, projects, research, and industrial applications. The “District” will start by hosting five major laboratories, namely; Robotics and Artificial Laboratory, Mini-Factory, Fabrication Laboratory, App Factory, and a Materials Library. Students, faculty, freelancers, and industries will have access to these labs to be able to try out, prototype, and test their ideas in different fields and may be guided in turning their ideas into commercial products. We anticipate that “District 4.0” will transform the way we conduct education in the STEM fields in the region.
The materials library is a hub for accessing knowledge pertaining materials composition, materials selection and materials fabrication processes.
The Lab is devoted to share and provide the skills and knowledge to creatively implement a broad spectrum of AI and Robotics research methods and applications
The FabLab will provide facilities and expertise in subtractive and additive manufacturing
AppFactory is a Laboratory to provide faculty, students, and outside hobbyists from different disciplines to build Apps
Mini-Factory is a destination where Colleges of Engineering, College of Science and College of Information Technology will collaborate to process and program Mini-Factory robots for value-added industrial applications .
