New Engineering Degrees for 2022

Built on our expertise in mechatronics, sustainability and information technology and delivered in our state of the art facilities, Humber's new engineering degrees put theory and practice to work.

  • Bachelor of Engineering - Mechatronics
  • Bachelor of Engineering - Information Systems Engineering
  • Bachelor of Engineering - The Built Environment

Humber and Sault College team up to increase access and meet industry demands

Humber’s Bachelor of Engineering-Mechatronics degree will be offered at both colleges in Fall 2022.

Humber College’s new Bachelor of Engineering – Mechatronics is designed to prepare students for careers in advanced manufacturing, food, pharmaceutical, energy and healthcare.

According to the Government of Canada Job Bank, there are currently more than 85,000 mechatronics engineering-related job in Ontario – and a shortage of engineering graduates.

Humber and Sault College have partnered to address the shortage and bring the Humber program to the North.

“Students in Northern Ontario face unique challenges, including vast distances between communities while facing specific labour market demands,” said Ross Romano, Minister of Colleges and Universities.

Minister Romano announced Ontario’s approval for the project in Sault Ste. Marie Friday.

"This is an incredible opportunity for students to pursue a high-demand career in engineering while living closer to home,” he said.

The degree will soon be offered at Sault College’s Sault Ste. Marie campus in addition to Humber’s North Campus in Etobicoke. Students in both locations will learn simultaneously through a blend of in-person, classroom and lab learning combined with video conferencing.

The first cohort will start classes in September 2022.

Meeting the need

Humber’s commitment to student success includes meeting the needs of students, employers and industry, and requires collaboration at every level.

The partnership with Sault College will allow more students to benefit from those connections and develop expertise that will help them secure a career in the sector.

“Partnering with Humber is a testament to Sault College’s long-standing goal of increasing access to quality education, particularly for those living in our Sault Ste. Marie community,” said Dr Ron Common, President of Sault College.

“Graduates of the program will be highly qualified to join a dynamic, in-demand field strengthening our workforce for future generations.”

The colleges will be using innovative digital delivery to include the hands-on learning experiences that build skills and increase employability.

The majority of course hours will be delivered face-to-face by an instructor, either in person or through video conferencing.

Students will complete their program requirements – including co-op work terms – from their respective campuses and will benefit from each institutions’ influence.

“Humber’s longstanding success and leadership in engineering and mechatronics, includes students who have won medals at World and Canada Skills competitions under the guidance of highly skilled faculty,” said Humber College President Chris Whitaker.

“We look forward to welcoming Sault College students to the Humber community and building a stronger Ontario college system.”

The colleges anticipate an initial intake of 65 students between both campuses. Students can start to apply to the program as of October 2021.

The colleges anticipate an initial intake of 65 students into the Bachelor of Engineering – Mechatronics between both Humber and Sault campuses.

The program is available at Humber’s North Campus in Etobicoke (north-west region of Toronto) and Sault College’s Sault Ste. Marie Campus.

The Bachelor of Engineering – Mechatronics gives students hands-on experience with industry-standard advanced technology. The program begins with a common platform of first year courses with two other Engineering degrees only available at Humber. All students from both campuses and across all three disciplines will learn together in the common courses.

Yes. The co-op work program component comprises thee work terms each with 420 hours. Co-op ensures that work-integrated learning experiences are woven into the program curriculum.

In addition to enhancing access to postsecondary education in Sault Ste. Marie and Northern Ontario, Humber and Sault College’s collaborative partnership will:

  • Facilitate and increase access to and student mobility in quality post-secondary education;
  • Streamline Time-to-Degree, so that students from eligible programs can pathway into the degree through both institutions and streamline degree completion;
  • Achieve economies of scale by co-delivering programming;
  • Allow students to stay in their home communities.

The program will be delivered using a blended learning model, which includes a combination of in-person delivery/support and videoconferencing. Students from both institutions participate from their home campus location. The majority of course hours are delivered face-to-face, either in person or through technology, depending on where the faculty member is located. Students complete all degree requirements at their home institution.

The Bachelor of Engineering – Mechatronics is designed to meet the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board’s (CEAB) requirements. Humber will be eligible to apply for CEAB accreditation upon the graduation of the first cohort of students in 2027.

Graduates will meet the academic requirement after the program is accredited by CAEB; however, applicants should refer to the PEO website for more information about licensure requirements. https://www.peo.on.ca/licence-applications/become-professional-engineer

Graduates of this engineering degree program will be ready for careers in advanced manufacturing, energy, health care, food and pharmaceutical packaging, consulting and other emerging areas related to the industry.
