Electromechanical Engineering Technician


Diploma


Program Code: 3070R

Campus: North

Length: 4 semesters starting in September

Manufacturers are increasingly relying on automation technology to maintain a competitive edge in the global economy. Our graduates are making their mark on the automation industry in the areas of:

  • Automotive and parts manufacturing
  • Automation
  • Mining
  • Troubleshooting and testing
  • Systems integration
  • Maintenance
  • Quality control and automated testing
  • Robotic maintenance and programming
  • Technical sales and services

Automation systems integrators are needed to build, troubleshoot and maintain robotic and automated manufacturing cells, as well as mobile equipment. In this program, you’ll develop the relevant skills in industrial automation, robotics, control systems, machining, hydraulics, pneumatics, safety, mechatronics, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), electrical, programming, manufacturing process and computer-control methods. Students are encouraged to be a part of an annual provincial and national skills competition in mechatronics, a prestigious competition among top institutions in Canada where Humber students consistently earn podium spots.
