Industry 4.0 and its international siblings envision revolutionizing manufacturing through integrating software-intensive systems from business plans to manufacturing systems to products and across the complete value-added chain. We observe a trend towards model-based systems engineering in the context of Industry 4.0, which requires finding a balance between modeling challenges and manufacturing challenges in educating software engineering students to become a vital part of this revolution. We

To this end, we instrumented the class with a questionnaire and semi-structured interviews to understand the challenges and expectations of students on this topic. We report the results of both and lessons learned for future project classes on model-based systems engineering for Industry 4.0.
