IMTMA Training Centre

Foundation Course in Industrial Automation including Robotic Application

Industrial Automation has become an integral part of all modern manufacturing processes and is constantly upgraded keeping up with the latest technological developments to ensure increased productivity with improved product quality. Increased use of automation also means a requirement of engineers with adequate training in all aspects of industrial Automation and best manufacturing practices is highly crucial.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing an exclusive 5 weeks Hands-on training program "Foundation Course in Industrial Automation including Robotic Application" at IMTMA Technology Centre, BIEC Bangalore for engineering graduates who want to make their career in ever-evolving Industrial Automation and also to enhance their employability.

This practical oriented Hands-on training program will cover the working principle and application of industrial automation elements & is ideal for Fresh Engineering Graduates / Diploma holders / Engineering students (6-8 semester) from Mechatronics, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, and allied disciplines.
