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.
Courses Program Standards
Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:
Fabricate and build electrical, electronic, and mechanical components and assemblies in accordance with operating standards, job requirements, and specifications.
Analyze, interpret, and produce electrical, electronic, and mechanical drawings and other related technical documents and graphics necessary for electromechanical design in compliance with industry standards.
Select and use a variety of troubleshooting techniques and equipment to assess, modify, maintain, and repair electromechanical circuits, equipment, processes, systems, and subsystems.
Modify, maintain, and repair electrical, electronic, and mechanical components, equipment, and systems to ensure that they function according to specifications and to optimize production.
Design and analyse mechanical components, processes, and systems by applying engineering principles and practices.
Design, analyze, build, select, commission, integrate, and troubleshoot a variety of industrial motor controls and data acquisition devices and systems, digital circuits, passive AC and DC circuits, active circuits and microprocessor-based systems.
Install and troubleshoot computer hardware and programming to support the electromechanical engineering environment.
Work in compliance with relevant industry standards, laws and regulations, codes, policies, and procedures.
Analyse, program, install, integrate, troubleshoot and diagnose automated systems including robotic systems.
Develop strategies for ongoing personal and professional development to enhance work performance and to remain current in the field and responsive to emergent technologies and national and international standards.
Establish and maintain inventory, records, and documentation systems to meet organizational and industry standards and requirements.
Contribute as an individual and a member of an electromechanical engineering team to the effective completion of tasks and projects.
Design and analyze electromechanical systems by interpreting fluid mechanics and the attributes and dynamics of fluid flow used in hydraulic and fluid power* systems.
Select and purchase electromechanical equipment, components, and systems that fulfill the job requirements and functional specifications.
Contribute to project management through planning, implementation and evaluation of projects, and monitoring of resources, timelines, and expenditures as required.
Specify, coordinate, and apply quality-control and quality-assurance programs and procedures to meet organizational standards and requirements.
This program offers a co-op option. Co-op work terms enable you to apply your skills and knowledge in a work environment and gain valuable, practical experience related to your program of study. You will learn new skills, learn about the world of work and meet people in your profession.
For students who are accepted into the program, three co-op work terms will take place. The first four-month work term is between Semesters 2 and 3, and then two consecutive four-month work terms between Semesters 4 and 5. There are limited spaces in the co-op option. Therefore, you will apply for the co-op option during Semester 1 and be informed of the process by which to apply. While co-op work opportunities are not guaranteed, as students are in a competitive job placement market, participating students will receive a wide range of services to help them find a co-op opportunity.

Watch the video to learn about the Mechatronics Skills Competition and why it is helpful for the students.
This program offers the latest in automation and robotics. Students are trained on modern robots (Fanuc, Motoman, Kuka, Wittman, Panasonic) and do automation welding on a state-of-the-art Panasonic welding robot.
Students gain hands-on experience with leading edge technologies. Our labs include an extensive range of modern industrial robots and control systems.
Congratulations to Theodor Willert and Avery Bird for placing first, Russell Farrell and Mateusz Cwalinski for placing second, Taylor Reid and Markus Laanes for placing third, and David van Amelsvoort and Andrew Vaz for placing fourth in the Electromechanical Skills Exhibition!
A team from Omron Canada Inc. put on an Automation Technology Showcase in the Humber LRC on Monday, March 26, 2018. Many students and faculty from the School of Applied Technology came to meet Omron’s solution experts and see robotics, sensing and safety technology in action. Students from all over the College were fascinated by the Autonomous Intelligent Vehicle that was wandering around the concourse greeting passers-by.
From robotics to mobile devices to automobiles and food processing, our graduates make their mark on process control, PLC programming, packaging, power generation, mining, machine design, building automated systems, maintenance, transportation, systems integration, component testing, technical sales quality control and a host of other fields.
Other career opportunities include automation and robotics technologists in such areas as machine assembly, troubleshooting and testing, systems integration, application support, maintenance, component testing and assembly, automation programming, robotic maintenance and programming, and technical sales and services.
Automation systems integrators are needed to build, troubleshoot and maintain robotic and automated manufacturing cells, as well as mobile equipment. You will also find opportunities in purchasing, customer service, quality control and quality assurance.
In an incredible showcase of both skill and accuracy, the Humber Mechatronics teams shined in the Ontario Technology Skills Competitions of 2016.
