Florian Morandell is one of the first two students to finish the Master program in Industrial Mechanical Engineering at the Free University of Bolzano. Morandell chose the specialization “Logistics and Production”, which is offered in partnership with the Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg. On July 24, 2018 the student presented the results of his Master Thesis with the title "Study of the Current State of Engineering Education in South Tyrol in the Context of Industry 4.0". The thesis is part of the research project E-EDU 4.0 funded by the Interreg I-A 2014-2020 program. in his thesis Morandell highlighted the need for both, more contents of Industry 4.0 in education programs for technicians and engineers as well as Industry 4.0 related training programs for executives and already existing worforce.

More and more educational organizations promote hands-on training models to prepare their students for professional life. Also in the field of engineering the application of case studies and business games is becoming more common, which are intended to simulate the situation in real life giving the students the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice. Some universities have just proven the use of so-called “learning factories” in addition to the traditional classroom environment for teaching in planning and the design of flexible manufacturing systems. These learning factories correspond to small and flexible production and assembly units for practice and for training. The Faculty of Science and Technology of the Free University of Bolzano decided in 2012 to set up a learning factory named “mini-factory” with the scope of a more practice-oriented education in engineering. This paper shows the concept of the “mini-factory” and the impressions and results of its application in the lectures. In addition, the paper gives an outlook of the collaboration between university and business giving also to small and medium sized enterprises the opportunity to qualify their personal in the mini-factory infrastructure.
