Our Program

In Humber’s Electromechanical Engineering Technology advanced diploma program, you’ll learn how to support the engineering activities of manufacturers that rely increasingly on automation technology to maintain a competitive edge in the global economy. Develop skills in industrial automation, robotics, control systems, machining, hydraulics, pneumatics, safety, mechatronics, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), automation welding, machine elements and computer-control methods. You will also learn to decipher mechanical and electrical schematic drawings and use electrical and mechanical diagnostic tools.

Our program builds upon the solid technical foundation of the technician program. The technology graduate is prepared to enter a wider range of careers. The skills first learned in the technical program are enhanced through project-based learning and increased hands-on practice in the labs.

Complementing your technical education are the effective communications, problem-solving and interpersonal skills that add value to any team. Coursework reflects real-world demands through independent and co-operative study in practical environments including experience with industrial size modern equipment. The industry relevant curriculum is taught by faculty at the top of their fields to provide you with the skills and knowledge employers are looking for.

Our advisory committee provides regular review and input of our curriculum ensuring our program is always on the cutting edge of industry developments.

Qualified students may gain a further edge through participation in Skills Canada and Skills Ontario competitions where Humber students have a history of bringing home the gold.

Courses Program Standards

Work Placement

Our program features an optional, preferably paid, work placement directly related to your program of study. The work experience is designed to enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in an actual work environment, as well as enhance your employability upon graduation. The work experience occurs after the completion of semester four for a minimum of 400 hours. Participating students are required to complete work preparation sessions prior to the work term to help them develop an industry-specific resumé and effective interviewing skills. Humber provides a range of services to support student success including working with business, industry and government to identify employment opportunities.
