Customized Technical courses

CAPE also caters for bespoke training courses funded by your companies. Our staff will work with your managers to understand the needs and gaps in your company for the relevant areas within the university’s expertise. We will coordinate with our experts available in the UTP campus to design a bespoke and focused short course suitable for your company. The short course is aimed to up-skill and re-skill your staff to meet the current and changing market demand. It can be a single day course or last for several days with relevant projects, if desired. The specialized course can be delivered in CAPE, at the UTP Main Campus (if laboratory exposure is required), your company site or off site. If your company would like us to provide any training on specific topics and areas, email us at We will arrange for a meeting in the presence of our respective subject matter expert, whenever possible.
