Since my background is not IT, I wanted a program that could introduce me to the basic concepts of technologies 4.0, also having the best faculty teachers on the field was a key consideration for my decision, and lastly, the fact that the program included a coach to accompany along the way made me feel comfortable with the fact that even when it is not my area of expertise, somebody would be there for me one on one.
