Our Centres of Excellence

A key cornerstone of TP's educational philosophy is preparing students to be industry relevant. Our facilities on campus are developed to simulate up-to-date industry operations and some take the form of Centres of Excellence that are developed in collaboration with industry. Besides giving our students the opportunity for hands-on learning, these facilities also enable us to provide consultancy services and collaborate on joint projects with our industry partners.
