CIC was established in 1983 by the Board of Governors of Concordia University. Its mandate is to pursue excellence in industrial control and automation through education, research and active interaction with the industry.
CONCAVE was founded in 1985 to focus research and development efforts in the area of Transport Technology. The establishment of the centre was made possible through several awards from federal and provincial organizations including a special grant under the Programme d’actions structurantes by the Ministère de l’enseignement supérieur et de la science, Gouvernement du Québec (FCAR).
