The University of Bridgeport's SChool of Engineering created a new PLC Industrial Control Lab to accommodate lab-based, hands-on training using different types of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). The Lab and associated courses were designed to meet ABET's EC2000 standards and prepare students for the workforce.
