The TIUF Master (Industrial Technologies for the Factory of the future) gets into projects of digitalization and development of the concepts of the Future Factory that target the majority of industrialists.

The modules of the Master's concern the main skills and technologies necessary for the deployment of Industry 4.0 concepts. The objective is to train students to master advanced industrial technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Sensors, Automation, Robotics, Industrial Vision, Industrial Networks, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, and Intelligent Control Systems.

The training devotes a significant part to experimentation and development activities on advanced technology platforms that reproduce different industrial contexts in a realistic manner.


The students will  acquire fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to effectively take part in development projects, transformation or upgrading of manufacturing systems.

Among the targeted skills, we can cite :

  • Applying a structured approach for the definition, development and deployment of a digitization project on a production system;

  • Performing modeling and simulation of systems;

  • Performing engineering and integration of digital technologies for the measurement, analysis and performance management of equipment, services and industrial organizations;

  • Implementing automation solutions;

  • Analyzing the robustness, dependability and eco-efficiency properties of complex systems;

Indeed, students will also have acquired transversal competences in "soft skills" in (communication, teamwork, English) and "business skills" (innovation, entrepreneurship, project management, ...) allowing them to interact effectively in their future work environments.

S4 End of Studies Internship

The End of Studies Project (PFE) aims to put the student in a real situation, within a company developing an R&D project or within a research laboratory. This internship will enable students, in terms of skills and know-how, to face the constraints inherent in the world of business.



In a unique approach, University Mohammed VI Polytechnic implements an innovative teaching and research model focused on experimentation. With this in mind, the University's sites are equipped with "Living Labs" dedicated to applied research. These laboratories simulate actual production situations as in mining facilities, experimental farms or factories , and are open to the scientific community and students.

As part of the TUIF Master’s, students will have access to Benguerir's Living Labs - The Experimental Mine, Safi's Living Lab- Chemistry Hub and to UM6P's Factory Lab.

Finally, the pedagogical dynamics encourage active participation of students, creativity, collective work and encourage learner autonomy.



This Master’s degree opens great prospects for students both in the academic and business worlds. Graduates will be able to continue their training as part of a PhD thesis, start their own company or occupy a position in an industrial and economic activity, mainly as :

  • Research & Development Engineer

  • System Architect

  • Expert Consultant

  • Industrial Systems Engineer

  • Industrial digitization Engineer

  • Industrial IT Project Manager

  • Automation Engineer

  • Instrumentation and Regulation Engineer

Sectors of choice : Manufacturing companies in all fields, integrators of digitalization solutions, consulting companies.
