ROBOTS FOR THE REAL WORLD
Flexible Schedules. We know life can be hectic and that is why we offer three flexible schedules to choose from. Attend classes around what works best for you and choose from day, afternoon or evening classes. For day, afternoon and evening classes, you can complete your training in just 20 months!
Hybrid Program. Our Electronics Engineering Program is a hybrid program that combines the elements of traditional face to face learning with the flexibility of online learning. 80% of your training will be in the classroom (one day online) and the other 20% will be spent in the shop. You’re virtually getting the best of both worlds!
