Overview

Be a part of the next industrial revolution! Build, troubleshoot and support next-generation industrial systems. Gain real-world engineering experience. Learn in in our state-of-the-art Advanced Technology Centre.

As we enter the next industrial revolution, advanced technology demands interdisciplinary skills. Mechatronics is the interdisciplinary study of electrical, mechanical and computing systems. Students gain expertise in electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering, and explore how these disciplines are interconnected. Using the systems-level approach, students develop both the applied skills and theoretical knowledge to build, troubleshoot and support next-generation industrial systems. Students acquire an understanding of electronics, digital circuits, motor control, robotics, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), pneumatics, hydraulic systems, machining, dynamics, stress analysis, the internet of things, web and database systems, and interface programming.

Through an official partnership with Siemens, students prepare for industry-recognized certifications including the Siemens Mechatronics Systems Certification program (SMSCP) certification. Students gain experience in problem-solving, and effective oral and written communications through the examination of current industry trends and requirements. Co-op terms provide opportunities to experience real-life industry skills, networking, and potential career paths.
