Thus, students will have to learn not only how to automate manufacturing processes, but also how to work in a team. With the right approach and teamwork, teachers and students will be able to simulate the operation of an entire production line.
Efficient software will support students over the entire life cycle– from the planning and design stages, through configuring and programming. TIA Portal, which combines both the package of all necessary software and integrated libraries for programming and additional hardware simulation opportunities. Therefore, before moving on to work, one can use the features of TIA Portal, PLCSIM, and SIMIT for virtual commissioning.
“Thanks to the modern equipment and software, Khmelnytskyi National University will be able to implement the concept of Dual form of education, issued by the Cabinet of Ministers in 2018. That assumes combination of education and practice for qualified staff within a certain profile which will be delivered be delivered here at a specialized laboratory. After graduating from the University, students will be able to work at high-tech factories with no need to retrain,”- underlined the Rector of KNU, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Mykola Skyba.
