The fourth industrial revolution blurred the boundaries between digital, physical, and biological worlds. It represents the fusion between several technologies such as artificial intelligence, 3D printing, robotics, genetics, etc. Smart education is a particular feature in the education sector as it comes after the supplication of recent information technologies and expeditious application of these technologies in the learning process. The main target of a smart college is to help students, and their teachers evolve skills, utilize, and implement the technologies in a method that creates advanced outcomes in the learning process. Various technologies, such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), big data, E-learning, cloud-based systems, Internet of things (IoT), wearable technology, and 3D printing, blockchain, etc., assist the exposure of smart education. In this paper, we propose a full schema, and framework of the smart college based on the fourth industrial revolution has been discussed which includes the applications of emerging technologies in smart classrooms, smart learning, and smart teaching that are adopted in the smart college. Also, this paper depicts the requirements based on the fourth industrial revolution, and the architectures, which are necessary for the effective implementation of the smart college. Moreover, a detailed review is carried out on the current issues, and directions for the smart college based on the fourth industrial revolution.
