Smart Manufacturing

May 30 - August 14, 2019

Smart manufacturing is a convergence of modern data science techniques and artificial intelligence to form the factory of the future. Smart manufacturing is about increasing efficiency and eliminating pain points in your system. It’s characterized by a highly connected, knowledge-enabled industrial enterprise where all organizations and operating systems are linked, leading to enhanced productivity, sustainability, and economic performance.

MIT Professional Education's Smart Manufacturing online program brings together cutting-edge technology like machine learning, Internet of Things, and data analytics to understand the current transformation of the manufacturing sector.

Machine Learning: From Data to Decisions

May 30 - July 31, 2019

Machine learning is having profound effects in many different industries, from financial services to retail to advertising. It is fast becoming a fundamental tool for making better decisions in business—decisions driven by data, not gut feelings or guesswork.

Today, every business has access to reams of data, whether it’s operational data, customer data, third party data, or supplier data. The question for decision makers becomes: How can I use this data to make informed predictions, take action, and evaluate the outcomes for future decision making?

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is at the forefront of research and practice for this emerging field within data science. Professor Devavrat Shah, who leads the department of Statistics and Data Science at MIT, takes learners on a deep dive into what’s possible with machine learning.

Digital Transformation: From AI and IoT to Cloud, Blockchain, and Cybersecurity

May 30 - July 17, 2019

A digital revolution is currently underway. Technology permeates every aspect of our society: communication, education, medicine, transportation, farming, and manufacturing. Cryptocurrencies are disrupting banking systems. Hyperconnectivity— through communication systems, sensors, wearables, and smart devices—has blurred the boundary between the physical and digital worlds.

Professionals who understand the implications of big data, and more importantly how to leverage it, can help their companies connect to customers and stakeholders with efficiency and precision, creating new opportunities and staying ahead of competition. Digital platforms offer fundamental improvements to traditional business models, can transform entire industries, and are key drivers of growth. Web-based enterprises that leverage digital infrastructure can enter markets quickly and move with agility in the new digital economy.

Tribology: Friction, Wear, and Lubrication

June 24-28, 2019

The study of friction, wear, and lubrication has long been of enormous practical importance, since the functioning of many mechanical, electromechanical and biological systems depends on the appropriate friction and wear values. In recent decades, this field, termed tribology, has received increasing attention as it has become evident that the wastage of resources resulting from high friction and wear is greater than 6% of the Gross National Product. The potential savings offered by improved tribological knowledge, too, are great.

The background of most engineers in this important technological area, however, is seriously deficient. For example, an undergraduate engineering student receives less than an hour of instruction in tribology. Moreover, most reference works of tribology provide little guidance to solving real-world problems.

Accordingly, this program presents current insights into tribology in a pedagogical form, focusing on such fundamental concepts as surface energy, elastic and elastoplastic deformation, microfracture, and surface interactions at the micro- and nano-scale. Additionally, special considerations are given to the application of fundamental knowledge to control friction and wear behavior through lubrication and the selection of materials and coatings in practical situations. Furthermore, modern experimental methods are discussed and several case studies are used to indicate how fundamental tribology knowledge can be applied in the design of tribological components and systems.

Who Should Attend
The program is intended for two kinds of participants: those who are active or intend to be active in research on some aspect of tribology, and those who have encountered practical friction and wear problems and wish to learn novel methods of solving them.

The course requires at least a first-year college course in mathematics, applied mechanics, and materials. Some lectures introduce more advanced concepts in these areas and in physical chemistry and thermodynamics. These will be reviewed where necessary to provide the required background.

Leadership & Innovation

June 27 - August 22, 2019

Innovation transforms the world. Leaders in innovation are often the same individuals who become major players in global transformation. At MIT, innovation is our driving force and we make it our business to train the leaders of the new digital economy. Innovation is built on three pillars: inspiration, creativity and motivation. The end goal of this program is for participants to have a firm grasp of all three concepts. Moreover, they will be equipped to use this knowledge to take their own leadership skills to the next level. This is a results-driven program with a very practical approach.
