This program uses equipment and software that is standard in today’s industries. IAP provides students with not only the basics, but also the advanced knowledge and troubleshooting skills needed to have the competitive edge in today’s job market. This innovative program is designed as an advanced industrial automation and pre-engineering program ideal for secondary and post-secondary schools.

Using the Mechatronics Principle, the IAP courseware was developed and designed to address national and international skill sets. The IAP program is comprised of Industrial Training Centers (ITC). The lessons in each ITC are in a clear, defined format that guides students through challenging applications and projects. STEM principles are integrated into each ITC.
