Mitsubishi Electric Automation extends its skills development initiatives to the university-level classroom. A Takumi VC 0852 CNC machine with Mitsubishi Electric M70 controls has been installed at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières to train a new generation of factory automation professionals. The Takumi CNC machine also incorporates Mitsubishi Electric CNC servo drives, NC drives and servo motors.

The Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, also known as University of Quebec at Three Rivers, is a trade/technical university located in Quebec, Canada, teaching more than 12,500 students across eight campuses. The new equipment will be put to use beginning in the fall 2013 semester within the university’s mechanical engineering department. Students being trained with Mitsubishi Electric technology could go on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering, an associate degree, or an engineering certificate.
