Full Description

Robotics, controls and process automation are cornerstones of modern production facilities and automated systems. Our multi-disciplined 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 to establish a successful career and add value to any team. Students will learn from faculty who are experienced in both the workplace and the teaching environment.

The industry-relevant curriculum is delivered through hands-on learning 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.

Note: 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 Learning Outcomes

The graduate has reliably demonstrated the ability to:

  1. Fabricate and build electrical, electronic and mechanical components and assemblies in accordance with operating standards, job requirements and specifications.
  2. Interpret and produce electrical, electronic and mechanical drawings and other related technical documents and graphics for a variety of stakeholders in compliance with industry standards.
  3. Select and use a variety of troubleshooting techniques and equipment to assess, maintain and repair electromechanical circuits, equipment, processes, systems and subsystems.
  4. Maintain and repair electrical, electronic and mechanical components, equipment and systems to ensure that they function according to specifications and to optimize production.
  5. Support the design and production of mechanical components by assisting in the specification of manufacturing materials and processes.
  6. Apply, analyze, build, install, commission and troubleshoot a variety of mechanical, electrical and electronic control systems, logic and digital circuits, passive AC and DC circuits, and active circuits.
  7. Install and troubleshoot basic computer hardware and programming to support the electromechanical engineering environment.
  8. Maintain and troubleshoot automated equipment including robotic systems.
  9. Establish and maintain inventory, records, and documentation systems to meet organizational and industry standards and requirements
  10. Select and purchase electromechanical equipment, components and systems that fulfill job requirements and functional specifications.
  11. Assist in applying quality control and quality assurance program procedures to meet organizational standards and requirements.
  12. Work in compliance with relevant industry standards, laws and regulations, codes, policies and procedures.
  13. Develop strategies for ongoing personal and professional development to enhance work performance and to remain current in the field and responsive to emergent technologies and national and international standards.
  14. Contribute as an individual and a member of an electromechanical engineering team to the effective completion of tasks and projects.
  15. Support project management activities such as planning, implementation and evaluation of projects and monitoring of resources, timelines and expenditures as required.
