Both Vanier College and Simon Fraser University recently announced programming updates in collaboration with Siemens, a multinational manufacturing company specializing in the field of mechatronics. Vanier will offer Level 1 of the Siemens Mechatronic Systems Certification Program (SMSCP). Training will be delivered by Vanier teachers, while Siemens will provide the teaching materials and train the Vanier teachers. SFU and Siemens will launch a new training facility for instructors delivering Level 3 of the SMSCP. This Level 3 certification is the most advanced SMSCP standing and will prepare students to become experts on complex mechatronic systems.
