Since 2012, students from the Industrial Electronics program have had the opportunity to receive a week-long training at the Siemens World Class Center of Excellence in Peterborough, Ontario. This training is valuable to the students as it assists them in launching their careers. The hands-on experience Siemens provides is an excellent way to complement their 3 year technical program.
The Siemens Peterborough plant specializes in radar and ultrasonic level instrumentation, weighing systems, and industrial communications. This valuable opportunity allowed students to experience the latest in industrial automation and control hardware, as well as the application theory for these technologies. The Siemens Learning Institute in Peterborough allows students to absorb theory and practice in a simulated industrial environment.
