Prepare for the future of Engineering

The Fourth Industrial Revolution: Blurring the boundaries between the physical, digital, and biological worlds. Industry 4.0 is the fusion of artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, the Internet of Things (IOT), 3D printing, genetic engineering, quantum computing and other technologies.

All engineers will need a working familiarity with the concepts captured in these monikers. Possessing a skill set in systems automation and controls is the key to success in this realm.

Make the SASI Workshop the jumping off point to your career in Engineering Automation and more importantly, secure a summer internship!

SASI is an intensive hands-on training program in process control and automation. Offered over Miami's winter J-term, you will be taught by industry experts, be led through hands-on controls experiences by faculty, and develop a skill set that will enhance your internship and your career.
