A simulator for water treatment at Cégep

SHAWINIGAN. For the Attestation of Collegial Studies (AEC) program in Water Management Techniques, the Cégep de Shawinigan has acquired a simulator that will allow students to deepen their knowledge by recreating concrete situations on water treatment lines.

This new acquisition will allow teachers of courses related to drinking water as well as instrumentation and control, to deepen their understanding of a treatment plant. The flexibility of the simulator to create real-life situations, through programming with artificial and manual intelligence, will promote student learning. This addition of equipment to the Water Management Techniques program will make teaching similar to operational reality and thus add value to the training of our students.

The Cégep was able to count on the collaboration of the company Automatisation JRT Inc., which did not hesitate to get involved by financing a little more than 50% of this $20,000 project.

Founded in Quebec in 1984, Automatisation JRT Inc. has made its place in the market through the manufacture of control panels. The company has diversified its expertise in the automation and integration of water treatment systems, in particular with the development of its remote management software for water networks, Multipli-Cité.
