The Institute of Technology of Nantes University develops many Industrie4.0 activities, from the manufacturing process to the production activity control. This contribution aims at presenting a full scope of those activities: design, control and manufacturing. The general objective of the Institute is to train graduate and undergraduate students from Bachelor to PhD on several industrial fields: Logistics, Mechanical engineering, Materials science, Energy management and Electronics. The teaching is based on the use of many experimental platforms in a shopfloor of 1500 m.. Examples of European or National research projects will be presented together with industrial transfer and education activities. These include: practical works of robotics and vibration monitoring for undergraduate students; datamining in manufacturing with the support of EmmaTools; use of robotics in classical and additive manufacturing; machine learning and advanced PLM; implementation and evaluation of Cyber-physical Production Systems on a digital factory experimental platform. An insight about the integration of digital technologies in future design methodologies will also be presented: digital composite manufacturing platform, concurrent engineering with 3D Experience, Bring Your Own Device design platform and a multidisciplinary 3D design platform.
