GARCES, Gonzalo  e  PENA, Camilo. Adjust Engineering Education to Industry 4.0: A vision from curricular development and the laboratory. Rev. estud. exp. educ. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.40, pp.129-148. ISSN 0718-5162.

Currently, the industry is undergoing a transformation towards intelligent manufacturing processes and complete digitization, emerging new information and communication technologies such as cyber systems, cybersecurity, internet of things, Big Data, integration system, cloud computing, digital and intelligent manufacturing, among others, concepts that are drivers of the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is commonly known as Industry 4.0. An important part of the tasks in preparation for Industry 4.0 is the adjustment of higher education to the requirements of this vision, in particular, engineering education. The objective of this research is to present a proposal for the engineering teacher, which consists of how engineering education should be adjusted to Industry 4.0 from the (1) curriculum, relating the study programs of the university under study with the existing courses and contents of Industry 4. 0, thus adapting the necessary components and identifying the gaps for the creation of new modules; and from the (2) laboratory, through Kolb's experiential learning theory and the implementation of teaching-learning methodologies, resulting in an improvement in the learning environment and in practices that maximize the students' skills in learning through their own experience. Finally, this research is a first step towards a more tangible vision of engineering education adjusted to Industry 4.0.
