World-class high-tech training offered in partnership with global firm

Two information sessions next week will provide prospective students with the chance to tour the state-of-the-art Mechatronics Lab while learning about the Siemens Mechatronic Systems Certification Program launching next month.

In collaboration with industrial manufacturer Siemens, the University of Windsor will offer a world-class industry certification in mechatronic systems. Instructor Shahpour Alirezaee will host two sessions to discuss the program objectives and highlight the employment prospects and career opportunities that Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) skills can provide across multiple industries.

“Many local and global firms depend on PLC and mechatronics to lead innovation in a variety of production, technician and engineering jobs in high-tech and advanced manufacturing,” Dr. Alirezaee explains. “The SMSCP certifications are internationally recognized as world-class technical qualifications.”

The program is one of many offered in partnership between the Faculty of Engineering and Continuing Education.

The information sessions, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. March 25 and 26 in the Mechatronics Lab 1115 in the Centre for Engineering Innovation, are open to students and the public.

Those interested in participating are encouraged to register with Continuing Education or to visit the webpage for more information on the SMSCP, which begins April 26 and runs every Friday and Saturday over a 10-week period.
