The only post-graduate program of its kind in Ontario, Mechatronics is a unique interdisciplinary engineering program that provides you with a fast-track to a sought-after credential.

Each student is strongly recommended to have their own personal computer for course work with an internet connection. The recommended computer should be an Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5, 8GB memory and 250GB storage, with Windows 10 operating system. SSD provides better performance than HDD.

An integral or external webcam and microphone for video conferencing is also recommended.
