Petrosains After Hours: Industrial Digitalisation



Petrosains After Hours is back with another exciting talk session in collaboration with The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). Join us as we discuss about the expectations of the Industrial Digitalisation – such as becoming Internet of Things (IoT) savvy, data analytics, embracing digital disruption and the opportunities that arise from it.

Industrial Digitalisation or 4.0 Industrial Revolution is emerging at an exponential speed and disrupting almost every industry. The depth and breadth of these changes are transforming the way we think about the future, smart manufacturing, energy management, value chains, governance and more.

We welcome Youths and Adults age 16 years old and above who wish to undertake their own Industry Digitalisation journey – and embrace it! We will also be discussing the relevancy of Industry 4.0 in Malaysia and discuss how to adapt IoT-connected devices into our lifestyle.
