With the opening of many opportunities to access knowledge, the education 4.0 (education in the fourth industrial revolution) age also challenges the initiative and competition of each person. The fourth industrial revolution is powered by artificial intelligence and it will transform the workplace from tasks based characteristics to the human-centered characteristics. Because of the convergence of man and machine, it will reduce the subject distance between humanities and social science as well as science and technology. This will necessarily require much more interdisciplinary teaching, research, and innovation.

Given the fourth industrial revolution, a new form of a university is emerging that does teaching, research, and service in a different manner.

Among the many discussions, innovations and general shifts in the world of learning – from school children to business executive – there are some trends that stand out:

1.    Diverse time and place.

2.    Personalized learning.

3.    Free choice.

4.    Project-based.

5.    Field experience.

6.    Data Interpretation.

7.    Exams will change completely.

8.    Student ownership.

9.    Mentoring will become more important.

This paper explores the impact of Education 4.0 on the mission of a university which is teaching, research (including innovation) and service.
