Industry 4.0 is moving quickly towards the automation of roles across industries.   As a result, the workforce will need to be retrained with the skills that enable them to enter jobs that will emerge as a result. We aim to develop a selection of educational materials focused on upskilling and reskilling the labour market using our robotics control platform, “PuzzleBot”.

NVIDIA offers online training courses specialising in training for technical industries, with a dedicated focus on robotics. Their courses are direct and use the language and technical terms that you are used to.

Manchester isn’t just where Puzzlebot was created, it is also home to one of the world’s top universities. We have proudly partnered with The University of Manchester to advance education, knowledge and wisdom for the good of society.

Coursera is an international training provider that collaborates with more than 200 leading universities and companies. They offer a wide range of courses with an easy to use online platform.
