For 2017, the curriculum has been tweaked to explain how PROFINET (the PROFINET of Things) fits into the context of the Internet of Things, the Industrial Internet of Things, and Industrie 4.0, complete with an application story. Examples of how complementary technologies like IO-Link can be integrated into PROFINET have been added. Past successes and future improvements on the use of Industrial Ethernets like PROFINET in process applications are included.

Over the last two years PI North America has been machine scoring the students’ course evaluations to ensure that they are delivering the quality of instruction required. Some of those results form 2015 through 2016:
