A World Bank survey showed that a lack of digital and mechatronics skills within production companies is inhibiting “urgent needed” investments in Industry 4.0 technology. Most companies have trouble defining exactly what skills or set of certifications they will need for Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 is going to demand that teams of people work together to solve interrelated challenges. An integrative view across the Industry 4.0 technology allows the identification of some generic skills requirements. Cross-discipline or multi-discipline skills are needed. One of these requirements relates to the convergence between mechanical/electronic/software systems. Specialists will still be required but they will also have to broaden their knowledge base with digital and mechatronics skills. MIND project is focused on the development of mechatronics skills and innovative learning methods for Industry 4.0. With the advent of Industry 4.0 the future of learning will be dramatically different. These changes will require employees who are 4.0 specialists and possess interdisciplinary skills uniting mechatronics qualifications with IT knowledge and high levels of social competence. In order to address the employment needs in the next 5 to 10 years the Universities must prepare the students and develop interdisciplinary skills that put together mechatronics qualification with IT knowledge and higher social skills in order to create 4.0 specialists
