The first Siemens Mechatronics Laboratory in Oman was recently inaugurated at the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech).
The laboratory will serve as a training centre for students and professionals to complete two levels in the Siemens Mechatronic Systems Certification Program (SMSCP).
“Siemens is dedicated to promoting human capital development and local capacity building to help in fulfilling Oman’s economic development plans and implementing Industry 4.0 solutions,” said Claudia Vergueiro Massei, CEO, Siemens in Oman.
“We are pleased to collaborate with GUtech to bring Mechatronic training to Omani youth, offering students the opportunity to pursue this globally recognised certification that will ultimately help them contribute to Oman’s development goals.”
Mechatronics is the combination of mechanical, electrical and computer software technologies as well as control and systems theory into a single system used in production and manufacturing. In practical terms, Mechatronics raises the bar for Industry 4.0 by offering a holistic, hands-on approach to automation that can improve efficiency, productivity and quality and ultimately decrease time to market.
