in the Polytechnic
Where students are industry ready, day one.
Our Four-Facility Ecosystem
In addition to the over-arching Learning Factory, the synergetic manufacturing system consists of three partner facilities all linked via networks and data streams for real-time analytics. Each facility supplies a unique education element – such as producing sub-assemblies, products, training or analytics – for inclusion in the overall manufacturing process, thereby creating a supply chain for the Learning Factory.
