Program Overview

Humber’s Bachelor of Engineering program begins with a common platform of first year courses which provide foundational engineering knowledge and skills. Following the first year, the curriculum branches into three different discipline areas: Information Systems Engineering, Mechatronics, and The Built Environment.  

The Bachelor of Engineering – Mechatronics discipline gives you hands-on experience with industry-standard advanced technology. You can choose from focused study in either robotics or embedded systems. During the course of the program, students will solve real industry and community problems and gain knowledge and skills in mechanical, electrical, electronics and computer engineering. Students use emerging and cutting edge technologies in robotics, control, electronics, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), motors, mechanical components, digital and analog circuits, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), machine learning, modelling, simulation, embedded systems, and advanced manufacturing. Each of these themes provides theoretical knowledge alongside hands-on training to complement a systems-thinking approch to solving real world problems. 

In addition, this program provides an opportunity to work on industry-led projects through multidisciplinary capstone projects as well as applied research opportunities. Through these experiences, students apply the theoretical knowledge gained during their education to solve real industry problems, while improving their professional skills such as teamwork, communication, collaboration and problem-solving. 

This program is also offered at Sault College in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Students in the program will collaborate on activities using technology that will involve simultaneous learning at both colleges.

Work Placement

A co-op work program (three consecutive work terms, 420 hour each) ensures that work-integrated learning experiences are woven into the curriculum. This provides students with a contextual understanding of the industry and specific sectors they are training for, as well as recognition of the importance of hands-on experience.

The Humber Advantage

Our engineering degree programs blend classroom theory with project-based learning, set in Humber’s state-of-the-art facilities.

The Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation is a 93,000 sq. ft. facility, home to the latest in areas such as automation, robotics, systems integration, user experience testing, applied research and work-integrated learning with equipment that is unique to North America.

Key features include interactive technology zones, digital media studios, cutting-edge prototyping and makerspaces, open concept gathering spaces and demonstration areas for new products and technologies.

The Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation is home to Humber’s Advanced Manufacturing Skills Consortium, a group of eight leading industry partners who are working with the college to train students and employees of Canadian companies. Consortium members include Javelin Technologies Inc., Cisco Systems Canada Co., DMG MORI Canada Inc., Festo Didactic Inc., KUKA Robotics Canada Inc., Rockwell Automation Inc., SEW-EURODRIVE Company of Canada Ltd., and SICK Sensor Intelligence.

Students will have interdisciplinary exposure and learn how various fields connect modelling the real world. Experience is gained through work-integrated learning and capstone projects.

Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation

The Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation brings students, faculty, industry and the community together to solve real world problems collaboratively. This 93,000 square foot facility provides an opportunity for students to collaborate across multiple disciplines and obtain hands-on experience using cutting edge equipment and facilities, preparing them for the jobs of the future.

Your Career

As reported in the Engineers Canada Report, Engineering Labour Market in Canada: Projections to 2025, the need for engineers in Canada has been steadily increasing, and growth is expected to continue in the coming years. Graduates of the Mechatronics discipline may find careers in advanced manufacturing, energy, health care, food and pharmaceutical, packaging, consulting, transportation, and automotive, as well as in other emerging industrial sectors.
