Description

The first Industrial Revolution was based on waterpower and steam engines for the production of mechanics. It began in the early 20th century, with Henry Ford. The third Industrial Revolution began, where microelectronics and computer power appeared in the field of manufacturing. Electronics and information technology were used to mechanize production. Among the physical, digital, and biological areas, where robots have taken on the difficult and dangerous physical tasks, to maintain plant safety, worker comfort, and product quality. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is fundamentally different, characterized by a host of new technologies that combine the physical, and digital. It is essential to appreciate that the Fourth Industrial Revolution involves a systemic change across many sectors and aspects of human life. “The Fourth Industrial Revolution is not a speculation about the future, but a call to action.

Higher Education and the Industrial Revolution Shaping the Future

The higher education sector was keen to put the principles of the Fourth Industrial Revolution into practice through the adoption of a model of comprehensive intellectual transformation.  This approach has made it possible to anticipate the rapid and successive developments, both in terms of emerging educational techniques and innovative teaching methods and curricula. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is marked by the merging of technology breakthroughs in several fields, including robotics, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, biotechnology, The Internet of Things, and so on.

From this perspective,  Al Dar University College is at the forefront of educational institutions. The University was keen to put the principles of the Fourth Industrial Revolution into practice. We were able to explore the changes affecting the education sector in the world. The University has radically changed the learning environment, using the latest technology to move from the traditional academic environment by taking advantage of the latest means of communication and modern techniques.

Al Dar University has been a pioneer in the adoption of the principles of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the academic and educational sectors in the region.  We are sure that by continuing to apply the model of comprehensive transformation and adopting the approach of change, we are keen to confirm and continue this leadership in the future.
