The Electromechanical Engineering Technician program will prepare graduates for the rapidly changing demands of the North American industrial environment. Today’s companies require employees with multidisciplinary expertise that combines electrical, mechanical and controls engineering skills, who can install, maintain, operate, modify and troubleshoot increasingly sophisticated and automated equipment.
Robotics, controls and process automation are cornerstones of modern production facilities and automated systems. Our multidisciplined and hands-on approach to learning culminates in a capstone project in which students design and produce a complex, integrated, fully functional electromechanical system by applying their accumulated theoretical and practical knowledge.
Students complement their technical skills with a focus on the soft skills needed for a successful career in industry and the skills necessary to add value to any team. Students will learn from faculty who are leaders, experienced in both the workplace and the teaching environment.
The industry-relevant curriculum is hands-on in the college’s machine shops, electrical and industrial automation laboratories, process controls and robotics facilities to ensure that graduates can move quickly and directly into industry.
*If you enrol in the program in January you are required to complete semester 2 in the summer (May to August) of the same year in order to continue into semester 3 in the fall.
Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
Program standards apply to all similar programs of instruction offered by colleges across the province. Each program standard for a postsecondary program of instruction includes the following elements:
- Vocational standard (the vocationally specific learning outcomes which apply to the program in question),
- Essential employability skills (the essential employability skills learning outcomes which apply to all programs of instruction), and
- General education requirement (the requirement for general education in postsecondary programs of instruction).
The vocational and essential employability skills components of program standards are expressed in terms of learning outcomes. Learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning and achievement. In addition, learning outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another. As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved and verified.
