state-of-the-art robotic
equipment for Seneca students.

nology - Automation (EMA) advanced
diploma program will be the first ones
to use the new equipment.
"The robots are an integral part of the
EMA program, and we are planning on
introducing them to our students in
January," says Romel Cipriani, Chair
of School of Electronics & Mechanical
Engineering Technology.
Seneca and KUKA will also collaborate
on curriculum design, training and

The first WIL opportunities from the
partnership are expected this year, and
interested Seneca faculty members will
also be able to enrol in training courses
to become KUKA-recognized instructors.
