View Curriculum

Mechatronics is a three-semester program focused on advanced manufacturing, industrial automation, electronics engineering, and computer programming. This is the first graduate certificate in Ontario that fully represents this interdisciplinary field.

You will develop your skills through hands-on learning. The program includes a comprehensive real-world applied project, several leading-edge lab courses, and Agile and Lean project management training. Applied research concepts and related skills are part of the curriculum, and you will have the opportunity to participate in applied research projects.

As technology and automation continue to advance, there is a growing, and projected, need for graduates with this combined level of skill and knowledge for high-level process control, advanced manufacturing, automation and robotics.

There are no other colleges in Ontario that combine these fields of study in one post-grad program. You will benefit from our established reputation in related fields of study, as well as strong support from our industry partners. Our state-of-the-art facilities feature the latest software, and leading-edge technology to ensure you will graduate with an advantage.

The program features a comprehensive applied project in the second and third semesters. The applied project allows you to interact with industry partners, building your collaboration and communication skills at the same time as gaining real-world experience and knowledge in your area of study. You will also have opportunities within the program to contribute to applied research – embedded within the curriculum and through external partnerships.

The options for careers in the field are varied across both the private and public sector, and include:

  • Mechatronics Technologist
  • Automation Technologist
  • Control Engineering Technologist
  • Advanced Manufacturing Technologist
  • Robotics Systems Technologist
  • Electronics Engineering Technologist
